Accidental bulb

I planted a tulip bulb in amongst my hyacinth bulbs by accident but luckily it grew and here is the result, a beautiful purple forced tulip. Also proof that you can grow your tulips indoors and have them a lot earlier than the spring!

  7. It is the surprises we remember. At some point when you think back about bulb forcing you'll remember that tulip and not the hyacinths. Enjoyed your picture.
