Forcing Tulips

Last fall, I bought a package of 14 beautiful purple tulip bulbs. Which I of course neglected to plant. Yeah, sometimes I dont get around to doing stuff I need to do. So anyhow, when we finished the planting table in the basement, I was going through my box of seed starting goodies, and found my treasured little bulbs, which had started to sprout already! Only 11 of the bulbs survived my neglect. I read a lot about forcing bulbs in the wintertime, and here goes my project. The instructions were all pretty basic. Plant the bulbs as close together as possible without them actually touching. Plant close to the surface, allowing just the tips to be exposed. Water as necessary. So, wish me luck!
