I'm glad I stumbled across this thread, I've been going back and forth about planting tulips in my flower beds. I think I may have to order some tulips to plant this winter. Only problem is I'm in zone 8A and would have to replant every year, but at the same time those are the best prices I've seen and I like that they provide some blends. Do the bulbs bloom over and over, or are they one and done?
One and done and only for like 2 weeks :(
... but it’s a great 2 weeks :lol:

Stargazer lillies I planted 2 years ago but didn't flower last year. This is first year they have flowered.

Bah humbug. Don't think I can convince myself to that type of commitment year after year for a two week reward.

There may be some research to be done because I hear that there are some varieties that will come back in some climates... ;)

You give me hope, because mine have not done well this year (first year)

Honestly after the first years disappointment, I wasn't expecting anything. Some of the bulbs I planted didn't even come up the first year. But I was in for a pleasant surprise this spring. Still had 2 or 3 that didn't come up (where I planted the Petunia).

Just added on new bed for tulips in front of my shrub bed in the front of house. Had room for about 100 tulips. Going to call the dog groomer tomorrow to pick up some dog hair to scatter as a squirrel repellent before I put down mulch.

Nice! I’m getting exciting for a bulb planting frenzy in a couple weeks! Actually have a couple of rogue daffodils coming up right now. Dog hair makes so much sense! Have always heard to get people hair from the barber but dog hair seems so much less weird :lol:
