Ive bought some Orange Tulips and potted them up and put them somewhere safe. A friend said "oh no thats too early"


MMM im at a loss now as what to do now. Im not going to dig them out. Is the concern the temperature and if so what and why should i be thinking about with regards to Tulips. Other bulbs like Crocus i have also potted up with no wrong doing - i believe.

Thank you. As of yet its been on best behaviour but i decided yesterdayafternoon to take it out incase it got over excited in the future. My friend is due to give me a cutting of a Lilac tree so thats what i will put in its place. And to be honest the fact it was toxic did make me avoid it at the best of times.

Rest in peace Mrs Limelight.

Has anyone heard of a plant called Oriental Limelight before?

It looks like the Marijuana plant in a funny sort of way.
