Trouble amongst the Tulips19th February 2014 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
I have a nasty feeling than many of the tulips that I planted last autumn are going to succumb to various viruses because of the endless wet weather. Tulips like to grow in free-draining soil, but even some of those in containers are showing signs of stress. I’m not sure whether containers with no sign of growth as yet have just rotted in the soil or are holding back for improved conditions. Fingers crossed it’s the latter.
