Q.Planting Bulbs When it’s Snowing

Anonymous added on March 24, 2014 | Answered

I have ordered bluebell bulbs in the green, which arrived on Friday. However, since then it has been snowing (in late March) and I don’t know whether it is better to get the bulbs into the ground in the extreme cold, or wait until it’s warmer.

You will want to get your bulbs planted as soon as it is feasible to do so. As long as the soil is workable and not to wet, planting now should be fine. If you need to wait a few days or so till the snow clears and ground dries out some, then simply store your bulbs in a somewhat cool location. They should have come already packed in peat or sawdust, so leave them in that. If they are in a plastic bag, however, I would at least make sure there are air holes for ventilaztion until ready for planting.
