Q.Have I Planted Tulip Bulbs Too Early?

Zone UK (Greater London) | CB84 added on October 7, 2020 | Answered

Hi there – I’m in USDA hardiness zone 9 and I planted my tulip bulbs out last week (3 Oct). I have since learned that this is probably too early and I’m now worried that they will get a fungal or viral disease. Should I dig them up and replant them later?

It is likely that they won't sprout. You will need to cool them in the refrigerator to break dormancy, since your zone is outside of where they can grow.
