Tulip bulbs storage
west central Scotland
- if they're not in the ground to start with, which is what the OP has
Even in pots, they [tulips] diminish over time here. The climate doesn't suit them, and I certainly can't change that.
Alliums do better if they're fed a bit too, but some simply do better than others too.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
Thank you all, guys. I'm still planning on lifting the tulip ones i know where they are, give them some real good soil enhanced with bone matter, sand and lime, add some bulb start, protect them with grit, leave some slow release plant food on top - but not on contact with them. Have a good chat, give them love and hope for the best. Plus give them some new family members, just in case. Its a lot of work. But beauty takes effort. Cheers from Scotland.
