Hi. I am just wondering what people do in relation to tulips. I have had tulips in a perenniel bed for years now. However it is very difficult to weed them and of course sometimes I damage them when I am weeding later in the year and I can't see them. I am just wondering if there is anybody who lifts them each year and stores them in boxes of dry sand or dry in bags.
I lifted my acidanthera bulbs after last summer and I cleaned them off but I didn't dry them successfully enough with the result that mould grew on them and they were spoiled.
I would like to hear of other people's experiences.
