Sprouting Bulbs - Knowledgebase Question

New York, NY
Question by lizcruz

This is my frist time planting bulbs. I planted my spring bulbs in late October, early November. Fall was unseasonably warm, and we had a few days of constant rain. It's the end of December and my bulbs are sprouting. What so I do? Will they be ruined for the spring?

They will probably be okay. Some such as grape hyacinths normally sprout quite a bit of foliage in the fall, others may put up a bit of foliage but should weather the season with no worse than a bit of tattering. Once the weather turns cold they should stop actively growing and just "sit" until spring.
