The Q&A Archives: Planting last Fall's bulbs

Question: I have left over flower blubs from lsst fall. Can they still be used?
If yes,when can I plant them? How should they be stored?
Thank You

Answer: Fall bulbs usually bloom in the spring after spending 12 or more weeks developing roots. If you do not plant the bulbs, they will die. If you do plant them now they may develop roots and leaves but they probably won't flower this year. But, they will store energy this year and will most likely bloom next spring. I think it's worth the effort to plant them now. Hope they reward you next spring!
