Thanks for all the advice guys. I think once the foliage has begun to die back ill definitely lift the bulbs this year. My soil can get quite Wet during winter and I don't suppose we have had much sun the last couple of years to bake them off. Ah we'll happy planting !

Thanks wintersong. It's not the new tulips I buy, they always flower, it's just tulips i have had for a couple of years in different places. I buy new ones yearly but I would just like the older types to come through as well. Maybe lifting them after spring and seeing what's happening will do the trick. As you say maybe they are putting all their energy into making new bulbs

As for throwing them away some of the bulbs I've bought have been quite expensive and I'd of thought I'd get more than one season out of them !!!

Hi all. I'm getting steadily more and more excited with the garden at the moment. My fritallaries are starting to open and my hostas are just starting to show signs of life. I have also noticed my first tulip has opened this morning so the weather is gradually improving ! But speaking of tulips I have various clumps around the garden that are just sprouting leaves and no flower head. How can I cure this as I seem to buy new tulips every year and never normally get more than two showings from them.
