I cut some for a bouquet.......will they grow back next year ??????
my tulips only grow 6" high - think it is the wind?
Enjoy those tulips! They will be back next year! After they are done blooming be sure to fertilize the leaves with and all purpose fertilizer so they can have lots of strength in the bulb for next year's show! Let the leaves die naturally and when they are dry take them off. If you don't like the looks of drying tulips just plant another flower in front of them. As to the height of the stems...the temp of the spring seems to determine that somewhat.
OH!!!! Be sure to cut the stem the flower was on once it is done flowering.. (deadhead.. not the leaves) off so the plant doesn't try to set seed...you want the energy to go to a bigger bulb for next year!
