Tulip bulbs

Zone 91710 | Anonymous added on November 26, 2018 | Answered

I bought some tulip bulbs and it’s in November but I heard that tulip bulbs needed to be chilled but it’s so late in the year that if I waited the 12-16 weeks to freeze them it would be around February so my question is do I have to freeze the bulbs.

They can be stored for longer than this, but DO NOT under any circumstances, freeze them. They can be chilled in the refrigerator or basement, but will, likely, die if they are frozen. This article will give you more information on wintering and keeping bulbs dormant:
