Last fall I bought tulips. I had hoped to plant them and have them all beautiful and blooming this spring.
Well when I was cleaning the laundry room next to the sewing machine under the red fabric I found my tulip bulbs. UGH. There went $10 and there went my chance at spring tulips.
I moved everything aside and noticed that the bulbs were starting to create stems…hmmm. I was mad at myself. What a waste. I couldn’t believe that I had done that. I just love tulips. I remember having plans to plant them with the childcare kids. I’ve done that in past years. They in the spring the tulips come up right around Mother’s Day so we cut them and put them in a vase for the moms. I always take pictures so the moms can see us planting in the fall and cutting them in the spring.
Darn. I wish I had remembered. Apparently the fabric laying over the top of the package and the big label on the package acted as darkness as the ground would so the tulips just stayed dormant and now were trying to do their thing.
Then I thought I’d give it a shot and plant them now. What do I have to loose?
So that’s what I did. They are all in a pot. They are under the grow light with the other plants. We’ll see if they come or if in deed the $10 for tulip bulbs was a complete waste.
So you gardeners in the bunch…do you think they will grow??
