|I bought 1oo tulip bulbs in the fall and never planted them b/c I soon got put on bed rest during pregnancy. I stored them in my cool/dry basement. Can I continue to store them until next fall, sould I plant them now, or what?

|It is a difficult question, because it is very difficult to continue storing the bulbs especially under home conditions. Since the alternative is to throw them away, you might try planting them in pots and then giving them the required chilling months in a refrigerator (away from apples)or possibly in the ground and see if they can survive.
