Spring is right around the corner and soon flowers will be blooming!
Tulips are perennials, meaning they return year after year when planted into the ground but if you are not able to plant them in the ground and still would like to grow them, this is a perfect tutorial for you.
All you need is a vase, decorative gems or pebbles, water and of course tulip bulbs.
Place a few gems or pebbles in your glass vase and set a few aside. Next take your bulbs and position them so that the pointy end is facing up.
Take the rest of your gems or pebbles and align them around the bulbs to help set them in place.
Take 1/2 a cup of water and pour into your vase until the water reaches right under the bottom of the bulbs. Try and keep the bulbs as dry as possible while pouring the water in the vase.
Place in a sunny location indoors and after a few days, you will notice the stem start to sprout and the bottom of the bulb will take root into the water. The roots will look like thin white strings so if you start to see this after a few days, your tulip is growing!
I will update pictures over the next few weeks but this easy tutorial will help you to get started!
