I've never used dearer ones supadad. I have always used the thinner traditional ones by a well known firm with yellow and red graphics, but I usually put the compost in large pots. This year they have behaved differently, there is plenty of fruit but the trusses seem to have developed erraticly with some large toms interspersed with lots of smaller ones, so pound for pound less than usual. Not counting last year of course which was pretty poor. I wondered if it was the compost, It didn't seem quite the same this year. One year I was in too much of a hurry to pot them on and put them into theIr big pots before the first flowers appeared and then wow, did I get leaves!

Yes, I know the one you mean, it's brilliant.  That will have to be on my list for next year for sure.

Thanks for replying nutcutlet. I'm afraid I'm not too clued up on the types of tulips but I think there were some lily flowered ones and some viridifloras amongst others.  I believed they were hardy but perhaps they needed to be mollycoddled a little.  It was a vile winter after all. I have'nt much room in my tiny greenhouse, perhaps I should have just put them in the garage for a spell or two. I'll try again next year They are too lovely to do without!

I know this is an old thread but I wonder if any one else has had a problem with their tulips this year. I have had a similar experience to Roly2 last year. New tulips in pots and almost non existant blooms, the foliage seems to be ok but the buds did'nt develop properly. They were planted in November and from a good source so I feel  very disappointed and completely baffled! I used new multi purpose compost although a different brand to what I have used before. I would welcome any comments.

Interesting to hear what everyone else is doing. I've had the same problem with the cold and wet and then possibly sun scorch on my sweet corn plants. They are in peat pots and desperate to get into the ground. Not a good forecast for sunday but I'm tempted to risk it. Does fleece really work?
