The Q&A Archives: Forcing tulip in summer

Question: I am doing a forcing project for my second year Hort. class. I am also getting married next July. Would I be able to force some tulips for class around Easter and some more on my own for my wedding in late July? I only hear about forcing tulips for Valentines Day.

Answer: If you have access to controlled cold storage you should be able to handle an Easter project just fine. The July date is more problematic in my experience because the plants just don't grow well in hot weather. Good luck with your projects!
