Some Tulips Get Only Leaves And No Buds

Question From: k. liberatore - Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Q: some of my tulips get only leaves and no buds.

A: Reasons tulips don't flower can vary. Small undersized bulbs are immature and will not flower. Bulbs planted too shallow or too late in the the season may fail to flower. Many hybrid tulip only flower the first spring after planting in cold climates. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
