Bulbs

Anonymous added on April 15, 2014 | Answered

I have 2 problems: 1 - I planted bulbs in October. They sprouted but never fully bloomed. Now bulbs are popping out of the ground. 2 - I had planted lilies 5 years ago. They are now overcroweded. They bloom every Easter, then wilt. How do I maintain these?

You did not mention which kind of bulbs you planted, but if they were like tulips, daffodils and hyacinth, then these bulbs cannot be planted in the ground year round where you live, as they need to be pre-chilled to be able to flower. This article will explain more about that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/how-to-plant-bulbs-in-the-south.htm It also sounds like they may not have been planted deep enough if they are heaving out of the ground. As for the lilies, you can just divide them and they will perform better when not crowded.
