Q.How Long Can The Started Bulbs Sit In The Sand Before Planting?
I wanted to purchase some bulbs that have already started to sprout from The Home Depot but I didn’t want to plant them outside yet because there is another cold weekend coming. They are planted in a pot with sand. How long can they stay in the sand before planting outside? They are Tulips and Hyacinth bulbs.

If you store them in a cold place, but not freezing, it should stop the growth. The back of the refrigerator should work to slow growth.
