The Q&A Archives: "unplanted Variation Of Flower Blubs"

Question: How long does a variation of unplanted flower blubs last for since I cant plant them over the winter or will they be ok to plant next spring?

Answer: Unfortunately, it is very difficult to hold spring flowering bulbs over the winter. They require a chilling period of several months duration in order to bloom, so they need to be planted outside in the ground or else chilled in a refrigerator (and away from fruit that could give off ethylene gas) and then planted. Perhaps if you can't plant them, a friend could plant them and then you could go visit them when they bloom next spring.
