Getting bulbs to bloom

Zone 78550 | Anonymous added on February 27, 2020 | Answered

I'm trying to get tulip bulbs to bloom in South Texas. The bulbs are in a container and the leaves have already started growing. The temperatures have been fluctuating from 50's at night to high 70's during the day. What should I do?

You may get tulips soon! Since you are in the south, I am assuming you purchased pre-chilled bulbs. They should be fine as long as you don't get a freeze anytime soon. If one is predicted, just bring the pot indoors till warm weather resumes.
