Are you relatively new to gardening and will be planting your first tulip bulbs this fall? Or have you grown tulips before only to be disappointed that after their first spring they never bloomed again? Here are some ideas to make tulip-growing a rewarding experience.

Many of these tulips are yellow with splashes of red but they are very variable. Some are mostly red with splashes of yellow. I was dissapointed in how quickly bloom was over with this variety but they were very pretty while the blooms lasted.
