This fall I've decided to fill the front beds with tulips, right in front of the boxwood and behind the liriope. I picked up 140 peony looking tulip bulbs today along with a bag of smelly Bulbtone.
1. Has anyone ever had tulip beds in the front? If so, did the foliage look terrible after the blooms were spent?
2. Do tulips naturalize like daffodil?
3. Anyone have any great tulip growing success stories?
Thanks in advance for sharing.....I know tulips are one of the easiest things to grow, but leave it to me to botch them up! I tried forcing some last year & all but 3 rotted! Speaking of forcing, has anyone ever just stuck the bulbs in the fridge before planting? I think my garage did not get cold enough...
