Summer Storage of Spring Bulbs

Anonymous added on March 20, 2011 | Answered

Last fall I planted about 60 spring-blooming bulbs in containers. Can I leave the bulbs in the containers for the summer? I can set them in the shade. How often should I water them? Gets hot here. Your advice is needed!

You can leave them in containers for the summer. I would not place them in the shade until after their foliage dies back though. They need the sun to make buds for next year. Water them once every 1-3 days, depending on how quickly the soil dries out.
