Last year for Easter I purchased some tulips for my mom that were grown in a glass jar with no dirt. I thought it was so amazing, you could watch the tulips grow from the bulbs. How to Grow Tulips in Glass Jars? The tulips cost about $15 and I thought to myself, I can grow these tulips myself much cheaper next year. I am always trying to find ways to save money. It should be cheaper to buy these tulips since you don’t have to pay for the dirt to grow the tulips in.
Yesterday while shopping at Wal-Mart I found tulip bulbs on sale in the home and garden section. For 18 tulip bulbs the cost was 2$ and for 9 tulip bulbs the cost was .75 cents. Wal-Mart also had purple, red and pink tulip bulbs. They also sold daffodils bulbs
In my glass vases I placed stones in the bottom. I then put water in the vase just enough to cover the stones. Next I placed as many bulbs that would fit in the vase on top of the stones with the pointed end of the bulb up. Make sure there is not too much water in the vase or your bulb will rot. Tulip bulbs do not like too much water.
Tulips can be grown at any time of the year when grown in glass jars providing they spent 8 to 10 weeks hibernating in your refrigerator. They make great gifts. I have about 10 jars growing now in vases and canning jars.
