Not sure if this was for me......the plant did stay green it just didn't bloom. Wasn't sure if I should feed it something. Is there a certain fertilizer they like, or home recipe someone knows of to give it life?

My wife and I are a bit worried about this too...we live in Southern IL and our Tulips,Iris, and most other flowers are all between 4 -8 " high now

We planted between 150-200 Tulip bulbs this past dec....every one of them has sprouted and now we are wondering if we may lose them all...this is our first time with them,do they have a chance?

Interesting reading about the early stuff, sure has been a strange winter. In NE Wisc. not a foot of snow total, normal would be 40-50 inches, last 2 yrs. we've had over 50" for the season. In fact, late March last year we had a 15" snowfall.

I have things in my perennial beds that did not turn brown this year. I'm worried about some things getting moldy or rotten as they aren't usually green yet. Way too early for this far north! By the way, my tiger lily plants do great.
