These are quite often kept in office as a trouble free plant-I have one I can see from here at home in a shady corner-does not require much attention-when the leaves droop water-then wait till they droop again.

The damp pebble thing is a good idea

It is the variety-they flower earlier than normal tulips around late February and are about 6 inches or so tall -nothing to worry about-these are mine -they have been in for a few year -picture taken 29th FEB

Is it on a windowsill?-it may have a too dry atmosphere.

Wintersong-have seen your photos you have done very well.

Pam-do the ironing tomorrow-how is it when we don't have to go to work we wake and get up far too early?

Turning black seems strange-could you take a photo and post it in here.

Yvie -there are no silly questions-I was a bit baffled as to what you were trying to achieve.

You are spoilt for choice as regards annuals-what about bedding geraniums?

Kate-it was a man in a car who said someone had told him-anyway made £3 so that has covered part of the costs

Double planting

I would put the tulips back, in their dying back state,and not remove them or cut them down.  I would say the baskets are approx 10-12 inches deep.  In a big square terracotta pot on the patio, I have Lilies at the bottom and Tulips on the top.  The Tulips are coming to the end and the Lilies are already pushing their way through, seemingly without a problem.  They did this last year too.  If I do your other suggestion of planting Lilies in the same kind of baskets and swap them over, I'll have 20 Tuilp filled baskets to find somewhere for, until I swap them back over again.


That was the snag in my plan but you could put them in an out of way place?
