Saving daffodils

GrannyC added on March 17, 2012 | Answered

I was unable to keep up with planting the quantity of bulbs I purchased last fall. How would I store the excess bulbs through the summer to help them survive for fall planting?

    I would go ahead and plant them. It won't hurt them to plant now. They will grow, they just won't bloom (as they have not been chilled) and you don't need to worry about it in the fall.Then the following year they will be fine. This is the best way, as the plants will still be able to replenish their stores to survive the winter.

    If you store them for the summer, the bulbs will be forced to deplete their already low stores while in storage and they will have a far less chance of surviving next winter.
