Tulip Bulbs – Frozen in Pots

Q: I have tulip bulbs in big pots on my deck and patio. Do you think the bulbs, if frozen, will bloom in the spring?

A: Tulips come through the winter unscathed in Minnesota, where the ground freezes solid in winter.

If your bulb pots have drain holes and the soil is not waterlogged, I’d expect your tulips to be fine for spring blooming.
