Q.What To Do With A “Tree Lily Bulb” Received In The Winter

Zone Yorkton SK Canada | just.gwen added on November 18, 2022 | Answered

I just received a Tree Lily Bulb. It is winter here so I cannot plant it in the garden. How should I maintain this bulb until spring when I can plant it in the garden. I know I can’t plant it in a pot at this time (November) since it will be 4 or more feet tall before it is time to plant it in the garden. What is recommended for a tree lily bulb. Store in a cool dry place until spring or plant in a pot in Feb. or March to be transplanted in May or June 2023.

I would, definitely, store in a cool dry place until you can plant it. In warmer climates, you will want to plant this in Fall, but in your area, your target time seems fine.
