Do you guys remember in January when I noticed the bag of tulip bulbs in my friend's
garage? Life got in the way and she missed out on planting them in the fall, they were
headed for the trash. :( I hadn't ever tried forcing tulips before, but thought it was worth
a try and if I got lucky we'd have beautiful red tulips for Valentine's Day. I told you about
Well, it took longer than expected, despite that I'm happy to report that they are alive
and well! I was trying to hold off on showing you because they have about 10 buds and
they're going to be really beautiful in a few more days...but I couldn't wait!
I planted these on January 26th, so you could estimate about 5 weeks before they bloom.
I'm putting it on my calendar right now to pick up an extra bag in the fall.
I usually buy mine at Costco and they're about $12 for a package of 90 bulbs.
I'll also note to plant them around the first of January and maybe next year
we'll have tulips for Valentine's Day!
Although, in my book any day would be a good day for a bowl of blooming tulips!
