So Please Tell me, Bulb Experts
I live in central Alabama, (South of Birmingham) and I planted a lot of tulips this fall.The ones I ordered from Colorblends were pre-chilled. The other 150 were not pre-chilled.
I planted all of them at about the same time, and they did very well (The Hot Pink color and half of the purples were pre-chilled,
The Pale Pink (Impression) and the other purple as well as the very dark "Queen of the Night" were not chilled:
Both sets of tulips did beautifully. Should that have happened? I really didn't expect the ones that weren't chilled to do well.
We probably had a little more cold weather than usual, but not out of the ordinary. It was a happy surprise, and I just wondered if those of you who know bulbs have any kind of idea as to why it would happen this way. TIA
