Are my tulips done?
I was given some pretty yellow potted tulips last week as a housewarming gift, since I wanted to start a garden (I'm totally new to gardening, and am trying hard to keep my plants alive! I'll probably be posting tons more questions.)
I planted the tulip bulbs out in the garden after mixing in potting soil, and they looked great for a few days. But now, all the yellow parts have dropped off! It's just 3 empty stems now.
Are tulips really supposed to only last a week, in the spring? Is there anything I can do to make them bloom again? I've seen articles and videos that say you deadhead them once this happens. If I do that, will they bloom again soon, or is it done for the year? I'm a little frustrated.
