Calla lillies
Category: Bulbs
I have lots of calla lilies that were forced for winter bloom. How should
I store them and will they bloom again next year?

If they were forced, they probably won't bloom again. Forcing is extremely stressful for bulbs, and it usually renders them useless. You could try storing the bulbs in a cool, dark, dry spot and then replanting when you are ready to try again, but I wouldn't expect much. Sorry.
