Its March and my tulips have no stem and buds are opening - why
Myself and my daughter bought loads of tall variety tulips in Autumn to produce a picking garden. Mine are in the ground my daughters in large pots but they are all doing the same thing. The stems are not growing and the bulb is producing the flower bud which is trying to open at ground level. Is this down to weather conditions? What can we do, there is a lot of money invested in these crops.
