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.

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

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