Long ago, I bought some dwarf tulip bulbs and went thru the forcing rigamarole to get indoor blooming before planting the bulbs. Nothing but leaves came up. Feh. Tossed the bulbs out back. Guess what happened about a year later.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)
Yes, the bulbs survived and put out leaves. And flower stalks. Which bloomed.
Year after year, the discarded tulips bloom in spring, while I do nothing for them. Maybe they are old Yankees like me: compulsively self-reliant.
