It rained last night.
This afternoon, I went out to dig up the black tulip bulb. There was no bulb even after I turned up the dirt for about ten inches.
about five inches down
When I shook off the dirt from the "bulb," there was nothing. So, I dug down about ten inches. Nothing.
This is it!
Will this ever grow into a tulip? What happened to the bulb? Down further in the ground?
While I have lost nothing, I am perplexed as to where the bulb could be.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. I know better. The black tulip has been planted differently.
I was treating the long white underground part as though it were a bulb. I think the tulip leaf has a better chance of surviving this way. What do you think?
Will this live in the pellet? What else can I do? Is the second picture better?
