why are my tulips floppy?
Devon, United Kingdom
They are Parrot tulips 'Super Parrot', white with green 'flames'. Planted in a pot in November at the same time as Tulip 'Exotic Emperor', which are fine (not in the same pot).
They were doing great but now that they are flowering, the stems have gone soft and floppy. oh dear, they look so sad looking at the ground.
What did I do wrong? Is there anything I can now do to stiffen the stems?
