This week on We Dig Plants Alice and Carmen tackle the drama of the tulip bulb. Take a look back as far as Greek mythology for a glance at the role tulips have played in the human experience (including reputed healing powers). Find out why you have to plan ahead to plant them, and learn why they can be such a cash crop in Holland and yet so simultaneously unreliable.
