Tulip Bulbs do Split
Some time ago a very knowledgeable forum member stated that the big hybrid bulbs we buy and plant and yes really enjoy, are about to divide.
This year, I was determined to allow some tulips to brown, then left the bulbs, store them and finally chill them to plant again next fall.
The wise person was right! I don't think I've found a handful that did not split. Many have spilt into as many as 4 small bulbs from the one BIG bulb planted.
I no longer feel guilty about tulips as annuals.
thanks to this forum, I knew what I was looking at.
