The Q&A Archives: I just found a bag of bulbs in the garage !!!

Question: Here it is Dec. 12 in Central IN. I just found a whole bag of bulbs a friend gave me as a housewarming gift. What do I do with them now???

Answer: Plant them and they'll flower for you right on schedule this spring. If your ground is frozen, you can still dig and plant because probably only the top inch or two is affected this early in the winter. If the ground is truly frozen and digging is impossible, your second option is to plant them in containers and place them on your deck or patio, or even set the pots out in the garden. I'd get them in the ground now, or at least plant them in containers filled with potting soil. They won't survive if you keep them bagged up. Happy planting!
