Princess Irene Tulips not sprouting.....options?
I've been pleasantly suprised at all the foliage I'm seeing so far...tulips, crocus, muscari, etc. One minor issue though...
I've got two raised beds next to each other. Each has 60 Triumph tulips, planted at the same depth. One bed has many spikes showing, the other...nothing. Not even one spike poking thru. I carefully exacavated last weekend, and saw some of the bulbs had very tiny spikes, but nothing that could be considered real growth. They were also not rotten, nice and solid. Both beds were constructed the same way, same height, same soil/potting mix, same water.
But the one that is not growing get less sun, due to overhang of the house. SO I assume that is why it's not growing, and probably will not grow?
So, what are my options? I could just leave them and hope they grow, or...could I remove them, carefully, and pot them up? I'd rather not waste them, but I don't want to remove them if they may grow.
They did go thru an 8-week chill period before planting, just like the others.
