Q.Growing Tulips In Water All Year

Zone 39574 | barnowlpath@gmail.com added on May 17, 2020 | Answered

I have seen tulips growing in water. Can they be started now? If so which type should I buy and how many for two 4 inch containers? How do I know if they have been chilled since they will not go through winter in the ground? Thanks for your reply. Linda Brice Barnowlpath@gmail.com

This is called "forcing" and then they are placed in water as a novelty. This is not a way to keep it growing, as they will not fare very well once they are forced. This is purely ornamental and temporary.
