Re: Siam Tulip


Personally, I would leave them in the greenhouse. Well drained soil, little
water. Since you aren't in zone 3456 you should be able to get it out
earlier than most and have it blooming by mid-summer. We plop ours in the
ground here and they do fine. I'm in zone 8b. Hope that helps.
