    My tulips in large pots have been magnificent. They are just starting to flower and have flopped over. Can anyone please tell me how to keep them upright? poppikin

    I think it may be the overnight cold or maybe a lack of water, if there's been no rain. I seem to have a similar problem with the daffs that have finished flowering in pots but the ones in the ground are fine.

    If it's a water issue & they've not gone too far, they should right themselves. If not, then they will have to be left to fade but don't cut them down too soon, otherwise the goodness won't go back into the bulb.

    Thanks but they have only just started to flower and I would like to keep them upright. I was hoping someone might know some stakes or the like. poppikin
