Q.Storing New Bulbs

Anonymous added on May 21, 2011 | Answered

I was given several new bulbs this spring. I do not have time to plant them this year, as we just moved into a new house and the garden needs a complete overhaul. We were saving this for next year. Question: is it possible to save the bulbs for planting next year, or are they useless if we don’t plant them now? We live in the Okanagan of BC, Canada.

If you will be storing them, wrap them in newspaper to store in the garage. But I do want to let you know that if they are spring blooming bulbs that you would normally plant in the fall, they can be planted in the ground until the ground freezes.
