Last year I wasn’t happy with so many of my tulips looking deformed so I got new bulbs, put them in new soil/compost in a completely new site and thought I would have a happy patch for a few years.
So why do my tulips look like this?
The first ones to open, that I picked just as they were showing colour, escaped the spread of the “spot” up the stem to the petals so I did get some tulips. A week later and the patch was invested with the “spot”. Why oh why? What is it, what can I do? Should I claim from the supplier? Do I invest again?
