Q.forcing bulbs in water
Help. All my bulbs. (paperwhites, tulips and daffodils) got tossed together in a bag in the fridge and now I can’t tell one from another. I have a large dish I want to put pebbles in with water to force them. What to do?

While there is no hard and fast way to tell them apart, tulip bulbs tend to be larger and smother than the other two, and paperwhite bulbs tend to be noticeably smaller than the other two. All can be forced in water, so if you don't mind a mixed look, they should be fine.
