Big thanks for this anonymous gift that arrived in Friday’s mail 🙏
I definitely have a sweet spot for over the top tulips and the variety Ice Cream has it all 😍
No wonder Tulip mania happened in the Netherlands 17th century where people became obsessed with tulips and the price skyrocketed and a single bulb was sold for 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsmen
I’m planting these ones now so they have a chance too sprout and be ready to flower in spring, a good way too protect your tulips from pests and fungi is too take them up after flowering letting the leafs dye back and not plant them again until the fall
My grandparents did this every year with tulips and daffodils planting the whole veggie garden in the fall that became a field of flower in spring too later be taken up give way for the vegetables.
