Q.Daffodils and Tulips in Containers

Anonymous added on January 15, 2011 | Answered

I bought containers and lots of bulbs last fall, but I did not make time for planting. I live in Memphis, and they have been sitting in my garage. Even here, we have had below normal temps since Dec. If I plant them this weekend, is there any hope for blooms this spring?Any particular advice? At this point, should I plant for sun or shade?

Unless your bulbs were bought pre-chilled, you will still want to chill them. While you have had below temperature weather, typically this will not be the case going forward and they may not bloom if they are not chilled.

If they were pre-chilled, as long as the ground is not frozen, you can go ahead and plant them
