PROPAGATION FROM SEED

I found a nice fat seedpod on my Yolande tulip which had got missed when I cut them back.  Is there any point in trying to get a flowering bulb from seed?  Any special needs?

    If you enjoy growing things from seed have a go.  It won't be Yolande but it could be nice. Only the species tulips reproduce to what you started off with.

     

     

  • Patience, lots of patience!  You could be waiting 2-5 years for flower.  But surely, it's worth a go, what's the worst that could happy.

    Any with any other seeds, keep moist but not soggy.

    Follow the advice given for sowing Alliums. It works for any bulb.
