Dead tulips from Walmart
Probably the question I am about to ask was already answered when I mentioned the dreaded "Walmart", lol, but I'm going to ask it anyway. Also I did do a search for tulips first, but got over 700 posts! So I hope this is a new and exciting question. :-) On a recent Walmart trip I decided to treat myself to some flowers. I grabbed what I thought were some nice looking tulips that hadn't yet opened. I brought them home, cut the stems on an angle a tiny bit and put them in fresh water. It's been... I don't know.... maybe over a week now, and they have not bloomed at all! Several days ago, I noticed they were sort of drooping over, and now the petals are falling all over my kitchen table. Granted I only spent $5 but I am mad at Walmart. Are there any tulip experts who can tell me what happened or if I did anything wrong?? I am baffled!
Thanks a bunch!
