: : : I would like to know if tulips seed obtained from the seed pods left, when not deadheaded can be planted/sowed to obtain new bulb growing tulips.
Yes, they can, but it's not as simple as other perennials. It can take up to 6 years before you see a flower and, if the tulips are a hybrid, the offspring will look different. Best to plant bulbs that will naturalize. These guides should be helpful.
