Tulips in terracotta pots
Can tulips get tulip fire if they are planted in a terracotta pot with other bulbs?
The RHS site says it lives in the soil for 3 years,but you can plant them in pots,and planted out in the garden with the pots sunk into the soil I don't personally know anyone who has had it.I always grow tulips ,in pots because our soil is clay heavy and can get water logged. A friend mentioned planting her tulip in August in the garden, explained about tulip fire and that she shouldn't plant them till November. She didn't believe me,so I told her to look it up. She did, agreed,but has left them in the bed.
If you're using new, commercial compost, it should be fine, as it's treated thoroughly enough to kill viruses off. 'New' being the operative word.
However, check the requirements of the other bulbs. Tulips need very free draining soil and protection from really wet weather, whereas many other bulbs aren't fussy at all.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
