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 !!!
