Sharing is caring!

 

For tulips, crocus and hyancinths try this tip. 

Store the bulbs in the refrigerator crisper or other area where it is between 35 to 45 degrees F for a minimum of 8 weeks and possibly as long as 14 weeks.

Do not store near ripening fruit. 

The ethylene gas that the fruit emits can damage the flower inside the bulb.

Plant immediately upon removal.

If you follow these tips and take the time to find your proper region then your bulb garden next year should be quite a success. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment. 

Remember, rather you choose to mix your bulbs in with perennials or make unique plantings on hillsides, following the proper techniques will make all the difference in your success.
