My spring/summer bulbs have not flowered. There are plenty of leaves, but nothing else. The bulbs are, tulip and daffodils. Any suggestions?
If these bulbs were ever forced to bloom, they some times get blinded and the following years produce only leaves. People some times save the bulbs when they get a gift of potted flowers. These flowers have all been forced to bloom for a certain date. (Easter,Christmas, what ever the holiday may be)Also you have to be sure that your bulbs have had the proper amount of time where they rested(like over the winter).If they do not get this needed cold rest period, you will probably only get leaves. If these bulbs have bloomed the previous year, you should have left the leaves on until the sugar and starches have replenished the mother bulbs. Cutting off those leaves too soon is not good.
I live in Fla. and store Daffodil bulbs in my frig. for three months before I plant them in Fla. soil They bloom, but only once, but it still brings memories of my wonderful daffodils from CT. jjs West Palm Beach FL
