The Q&A Archives: Late Planting of Bulbs

Question: I have bulbs from last year are they still good to plant when the ground softens they were kept in adark dry area?

Answer: You can plant your bulbs as soon as the ground is workable. They won't flower this year but if you don't plant them soon they will die. They may produce foliage. Allow the foliage to grow and then ripen and turn brown. This will replenish the stored energy in the bulb and they should grow and flower for you next spring. If the bulbs do not produce foliage this year, they will die and will have to be replaced. Let's hope for the best!
