Hi borassus...  these have been in gound for 4 years now.. i lift and remove lot of new baby ones every other year.. i normally have a large gorgeous display of htem but this year as Roly2 has said..they have not been good at all... even my muscari have been less than normal blooming amount.. they have come up very short in height and small flower heads or none at all..and these are just the normal tall standard tulip.. i have no fancy frilly ones or double ones etc..

i love my tulips and i am very upset by this lack of display... i ahve asked other people and some are saying the same about htis years flowers.. i think it might have something to do with the very dry winter we had here.. hardly any rain and i think they need it at start of the bulbs growing time.

thank you for your replies and i will consider lifting htem each year...but i have so many it will be a big task along with not disturbing surrounding plants..

hello everyone.. i have a problem with my tulips this year.. they have not flowered as well as normal.. i was wondering if it was because of the dry weather we have had down south.. or do they have to be lifted and divided like other bulbs..
