Tulips from Seed

Post by Freeranger »

I've just been looking for cheap ways of providing colour and nectar in the garden a bit earlier in the year for next season.
There are loads of tulip seeds online. Has anyone tried growing from seed, and how challenging was it, please?

My guess is they wouldn't flower for several years, even the little bulbs that form at the base on old bulbs take a while to bulk up and I know we used to buy bulbs every year whereas Daffs go on from year to year.
But I don't know for sure.

Thanks, Mo - I won't waste my time on that then - easier to get bulbs and seeds for other things.
