Today I dug up some bulbs and some hydrangeas. I put them in a bucket for travel. Now I'm home and tired. What can I do to keep them until I can plant them tomorrow. We live in the south.

Just moisten them a little, and put in garage.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

do you have a raised garden bed? mine has a cover and I use it to protect/strengthen plants I've transplanted. Got the idea from angus stewart - horticulturalist:

I'm late to this discussion, and sorry this had to happen during a cold spell. Being dug up won't bother bulbs, but might affect this years' bloom, depending on what kind they are. Hydrangeas get even more thirsty when moved but even if the foliage wilts so bad that it falls off, the roots can survive & get going if kept moist. Hope all is well!

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
