We had a couple of warm days, and now my tulips are coming up. They're about an inch out of the ground already. I just know that we're going to get more cold weather soon and they'll get a frost and won't bloom this year. Is there anything I can do?

We are having the same thing happen. Actually it happened last year also and made for a really ugly spring!! The weather has been all messed up!!! If we have another freeze before "winter" is over, we will have no flowers for Spring again.

I have no idea if there is anything you can do. I know not a thing about flowers.

I have lilies and things like that coming up...I know they are not tulips, but I took the leaves that had fallen from the trees and covered the flowers up...Thinking that if we did get more cold weather then maybe they would be warm if covered up. I have no idea if that will work, but it's worth a try.

Ours are covered in mulch and so far, I haven't noticed any trying to pop up yet (although I haven't looked closely). Mike was just saying last night that we haven't even had a winter this year. Hope it doesn't decide to rear it's ugly head this late in the game!

I just noticed that I have hyacinths and a crocus (sp?) coming up, too. Oh well... I keep hearing that it's gonna get cold and snow or we're gonna have freezing rain, but nothign so far. It's chilly, but nothing that would kill them. We'll probably get a snow storm in March, or something,
