Hello! After removing all my poor tulips with tulip fire I want to reuse the pots and soil for my petunias. Is this safe? There is little that I have found on the web apart from possible contimination with lillies and snakeshead plus 2-3 years
Fungal spores attack emerging tulip leaves. They invariably become malformed, with brown spots leading to rotting of both the foliage and flowers, although the buds may well fail to open. If they do open, there will probably be white spots
don't you just love Tulips, amazing how there is an awful desease waiting to attack everything on the planet, if it's not one virus it's another but we keep on trying, because we think they are wondeful.
