The Q&A Archives: Tulip Bulbs With Mold

Question: I have some tulip bulbs that were left in a closet for several weeks tied up in plastic bags. Some of them have mold growing on them, and some have sprouted a little; but they don't seem to be mushy or soft. Should I plant them? The ground here is still very soft and warm, as we have been enjoying mild weather in the BOSTON area.

Answer: Go ahead and plant them as soon as possible. Try not to break off any sprouts and do still bury them at the recommended depth. Next time, keep them in a paper bag or better yet plant them right away!
