The Quest For Winter Blooms: Hydro Forcing Tulips

All flower lovers and growers feel it. . .especially from January thru March. . ."the flower gap." That period of time when the holiday amaryllis are done and the daffodils and early tunnel flowers have not yet bloomed. We miss the joy that comes with having fresh flowers on our counter or table. . .the pop of color and life they bring to the every day.

So, in our quest for elusive winter blooms, we decided to try our hand at growing tulips in the dead of winter. There are 2 main ways to force tulips outside of their regular growing season-in containers with soil and in water, or hydro forcing. Since we have had such great luck in the past with hydro forcing amaryllis, we decided to go with the latter.
