Tulips and hyacinths ?
Posted by Lucy from OH on 2002-03-05 18:20:25

Hello,

I am pretty new to gardening, and have planted my first tulips and hyacinths this year. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if they need covered during the frost? We are still receiving frost, and light snow in the area and I have some tulips and hyacinths popping up. I wasn't sure if I should try covering them or not. I did mulch them pretty heavy when I planted them, but have shifted some of it away to allow them to come up. Now I'm wondering if I should have the mulch on them or not!

Anyway, would appreciate any help with this.

Thanks,
Lucy

    These, as well as all the other spring flowering bulbs, are pretty hardy and grow better in cooler weather than warmer. I've not seen any problem with frost with these guys in all the years I've been gardening, starting about 1950.
