Tulip Bulbs

rodnsue added on February 15, 2018 | Answered

I found some tulip bulbs, still in package, that I forgot to plant in the fall. They have been in our semi heated garage (60 degrees approximately) all winter...Can I plant them in a container and set outside.We live in central Illinois and its mid-February. Any hope of them blooming? Thank you for your input.

Yes, pot them up and put outside. They need 8-15 weeks of cold (35-50F) to trigger sprouting. I would let them bloom in the container and move the bulbs outside after the flowers fade.
