Shoots already!

I planted some Tulip bulbs in the past month in small pots. Is it normal that shoots are  coming through already.

 

Many thanks ( John )

  • Yes - they'll slow down when the weather cools down - they'll be fine.  image

    This has started to happen in the last few years.  I don't remember it happening ages ago.  (But then I don't remember much these days...)image

  • I've still got dailies flowering and roses o and astrantias
  • Thank you.

    The weather has not been too cold, so they have been left outside. I do not have a greenhouse do they need to be kept indoors i.e a garden shed Or do they need heat and light.

    Thanks again .......John

    Do you mean your tulips John, they should be outside.

  • Hi Lyn, Yes the potted tulips are outside. I have others in the ground, obviously they will stay there. My main concern is that the potted Tulips might get frozen in their pots, and that I might lose them. 

  • No, the tulips will be just fine outside in the pots - that's where mine are - they need the cold weather image

    thought that was just me Steve image

    Mine are also outside, slightly sheltered from the worst of the rain which causes more problems than nay cold will give them. They'll be absolutely fine John, it's what they're designed to do.

    Hope you get a good display  image
