Q.Planting spring bulbs now

Lynne added on June 27, 2011 | Answered

I have spring bulbs that I still haven’t planted. Is it too late? I have Calla Lily, Phlox, Ranunculus and Dahlia bulbs that I should have planted in spring. Can I still plant them? I live in Colorado.

It may be too late, but you have to try. They will not survive another year in dormancy. They need to break dormancy so that they can try to store enough energy to survive another winter. You can try planting them in pots so that you can bring them in for the fall and give them a little more time to grow to store enough energy and then you can put them into dormancy again.
