Gudoshnik tulips and La Nina

remontant(z6B TN)February 25, 2012

Hello! I wonder if our La Nina winter weather (warmer and much wetter than usual) might have put the whammy on the new Gudoshnik tulips I planted last fall? I have older, established Darwin tulips which already have their foliage well above ground. Should I give the Gudos another month to see if anything will sprout, or should I give over their spot to some old garden roses I've potted up?

I would not give up on them yet as I have found that spring blooming bulbs, newly planted the previous fall, are often a bit later to emerge and bloom. They may also just be a bit later variety to emerge.

Good luck...hope they do well for you.

Thanks Sue! That's sound advice because I've had the other Darwins for several years now. I thinned them last summer and was surprised to see they weren't as deep as I remembered planting them--frost heave, perhaps? Anyway, I planted the new bulbs 6" deep, so maybe they just have further to travel.

Thanks for your help!
