Q.Bare Root Bulbs

Zone 06472 | itrn93 added on May 7, 2020 | Answered

I planted coral bells bulbs from Costco but I didn’t know to soak them first. It did rain a lot after that though. How long before they grow or I can assume they’ve rotted? I planted Virginia blue bell root bulbs around the same time. Should Cornflower bulbs be soaked too?

If it has been raining, then soaking them will absolutely lead to rot. You did the right thing by not soaking them in this case.

It is best to follow the instructions on the packaging for planting, though, normally.

Here are some articles to help you grow the plants:
