Q.Bare root bulbs
I just purchased a box of bare root bulbs. The box stated 10 bulbs but only 3 long ones are in the box. Do I cut the bulbs in 1/2 or 1/3 them? Or did I get jipped? They are planted vertically too, I am assuming since there is a tap root.
Since I'm not sure of the type of bulb you have purchased I cannot advise any division of bulb.
I would most certainly contact the point of purchase and verify the contents of your purchase.
Growers generally are more then helpful if you contact them directly also. Is there a web site listed on the labeling?
That would also be a great place to start.
