Blue Jay by mdumaine
About 2 years ago I planted about 3 dozen tulips in a couple of areas at the front and side of our house and patio. Last year I had a lot of tulips. When they stopped blooming I pinched off the blooms and left the leaves till they turned yellow, then cut them back to a couple of inches. I mulched in the fall. So far this year, I haven't seen any signs of tulips, thought the daffodils planted in the same areas are blooming -- or at least have leaves and buds. I live in Central Illinois and we had a very cold, snowy winter. Any idea why my tulips aren't coming back? Or is it just too soon?
