Tulips turning brown
About 3 weeks ago I purchased some tulips and daffodils at the local nursery. They were healthy, shooting up, and vibrant green.
Now 3 weeks later, here in Seattle with ample rain (and a little bit of sun) they were in my east-facing planter and the tulips are turning brown.
One thing I wasn't clear on was how deep to plant already sprouting tulips. They're probably only a half-inch to inch deep (bought them same way). Daffodils are planted the same way but I couldn't ask for them to be doing better.
Here are some pictures. What could be the problem? Do they need to be planted deeper? It almost looks like they are burning up.
