Evening everyone 🙂
My tulips have finished flowering and I’m wondering whether I should lift and store the bulbs …
It is a lot of work to lift and store tulip bulbs (or any bulbs for that matter!) It’s only really necessary IMHO if you are in a particularly cold or wet area.
Lift, clean, wash, dry, store in a cool and dry place.
I sometimes do it. Tulips seem to be more receptive to TLC than other bulbs – daffs, just chuck ’em in the ground and leave ’em to it!
I’ve never even considered lifting bulbs! Any other tip about lifting and storing bulbs? What bulbs should I be lifting and storing?
Thanks, Verity and Marty.
Lifting and storing tulip bulbs has never crossed my mind before. I heard someone talking about it and thought I’d ask you lovely people 🙂 Think I’ll leave them lol.
Tulips can really vary in their success depending on the soil that they are sat in while not in flower. They do not like being waterlogged!!
Good point there GF 🙂 Mine seem to be fine really, just wondered if it were something one is ‘meant ‘ to do!
part of the fun of gardening lifting and storing bulbs!
