Planting Bulbs When It’s Snowing

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.

Nearly all varieties of daffodil and bluebells are good naturalizers and will happily multiply throughout the area. It is simply mor of a personal choice as to what you like.

Bluebells

I have a lot of them and they are mixed in with other plants. When can I pull off the leaves?

ANSWERS

I would wait until the leaves turn yellow/brown. The longer you wait the more energy the bulbs can stockpile through the leaves.

Va Blue Bell

I planted a Virginia Blue Bell several years ago. It comes up and blooms each spring, but never spreads. It is planted under a big oak tree with mostly shade. What could be the problem?
Thanks;

ANSWERS

Partial sun to full sun may be a better match for the Virginia Blue Bells.
You should see this plant naturalizing in your landscape.

Getting Rid of Bluebell Bulbs.

Will spraying weed killer on bluebells kill them, and if so, when would be the best time to do it?
Thanks,
William
