Re: tulip forcing

Sorry , to put you to the trouble, but those were times for summer bulbs,
not spring bulbs.  Last night I did look through my files and found
estimates of 2 to 3 weeks and 2 to 4 weeks, with a caveat.  The caveat was
that tulips require adequate rooting (noted by roots coming out the bottom)
regardless of whether shoots are coming out the top, for them to be ready to
be moved.  So I'll check the bottoms tomorrow.  I bet they are ready because
they've had at least 16 weeks out there.  I'll probably bring them in at the
end of March for the April 15 sale.  I want them to be in bud, but not in
flower, so buyers will feel they'll get their money's worth, timewise.  A
tag with the name and a picture will be attached to each pot.  Or do you
think I should have some in bloom to draw attention?

BTW - I'm sending this to Chat too in case anyone is interested in the
timing and in case others have ideas about whether they should be in bloom
or in bud for the sale.
