Answer: The answer to your question depends upon the bulbs under discussion. In general terms, commonly grown bulbs such as tulips and narcissus develop little bulblets on the outside of the mother bulb. These can be removed and planted and they will eventually produce flowers on their own. The maturation process can take 3-4 years, so expect green leaves only for the first few years after separation, and then smallish flowers for a year or two before the bulbs are large enough to produce large flowers. Hope this information is helpful!
