We were talking in Jasmine's garden thread about replanted Tulips that have been used in pot displays coming back if you plant them out instead of throwing them away.
Here's a few of the ones that I've got popping up around the garden, some of them taken a couple of years or so to flower properly again, the first year they usually just make leaves & I only expect about 50% or so to make it.
And then I get odd ones coming up that I don't even remember planting.
Your Tulips are smashing Jilly and it's heartening to know that they can be saved and don't have to be thrown away. I think I'll plant mine out in a bed at the allotment and see what happens. I don't have room in the garden for them.
Gorgeous Jilly....I seem to have lost most of my tulips this year....
The Viburnum smells absolutely divine when I walk past it...
We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
I've missed these lovely photos whilst I've been busy gardening, and then had the PC hiccup yesterday
Auricula those displays are wonderful, like a tulip sweety shop
I do well with my deep planted tulips, they come up every year and some are quite ancient now, one got moved when we widened the drive back over ten years ago, and it came up and flowered again this year! I've never treated them as annuals, think you are right and it's a myth propagated by bulb companies!
RF can you request that Proboards hurry up and introduce the scratch and sniff with V5 please?
