Tulipa sylvestris

Different conditions, but I am on my second spring, with increase in bulbs
and flower buds on T. sylvestris. In pots here in the Netherlands.
I basically just shoved them into the soil with some dwarf fruit trees in
large clay pots, kept outdoors on a terrace.
I figured they would make it or not, up to them, But I also thought that
they would dry increasingly as the summer wore on and the potted trees
demanded more water.
Sometimes bulbs seem to do very nicely planted among tree roots. The pots
are kept watered, but only according to what the trees require.
In the winter we get more rain than sun. Much more.
Soil is bagged potting soil based on cocopeat and loam.

I basically did nothing by the rules. Normally I'm far more exacting, but
this was a hurried job before leaving on a break.

Experience in Catalunya, within spitting distance of a salt water harbor
was unsuccessful with this species. I think the heat was too much for them.
