Darwin Tulips

Tulips in the warm winter areas of California are difficult for the average gardener. However if you plant Darwin tulips (following directions), you don't have to dig them up until they get crowded. This takes about 4 or 5 years depending on the spacing.

When we have a very warm winter, I buy large bags of ice and pour the ice over the tulips. 2 applications of ice in mid February should do the trick. This has worked for me in central CA for over 20 years, and I have not lost a tulip!
