Calla lillies
Category: Bulbs
I have lots of calla lilies that were forced for winter bloom. How should
I store them and will they bloom again next year?

Answer: If they were forced, they probably won't bloom again. Forcing is extremely stressful for bulbs, and it usually renders them useless. You could try storing the bulbs in a cool, dark, dry spot and then replanting when you are ready to try again, but I wouldn't expect much. Sorry.
