HC Deb 04 June 1957 vol 571 c79W
Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Works what happens to the bulbs in the Royal Parks when they have been removed from the beds.

Mr. Molson

The great majority of the tulips are planted again for a second year and afterwards destroyed. The labour and cost of sorting and packing for sale would make such a course uneconomic. Some daffodils and narcissi are grown each year in beds and later lifted and naturalised in grass where they may remain undisturbed for a long time.
