Growing tulips in Raleigh
I just bought 3 bags of tulip bulbs at Home Depot and the cashier told me, as she handed me the receipt, that she hear that tulip bulbs don't come back a second year in our area (Raleigh, NC). She said that hers didn't even come up a first year. Does anyone know if this is true or how to prevent problems? Tulips are my favorite flower and I've waited so long to finally have my own home and be able to plant them.
