Should I put my bulbs in the fridge??

bcb77(7b)January 2, 2007

I bought 3 big packages of tulip bulbs in the fall with every good intention of planting them... which of course I didn't do.

So can I put them in my refridgerator for 8 weeks, then plant them and still see good results with blooming?

Thanks for any info!

If you will plant them now, you should get enough chill hours for them to do fine. If you wait much more, you may not get the cold you need.

I agree...they need to get in the ground. Spring bulbs develop their strong root systems in the dormant winter, but only if planted and watered in. Dry refrigeration won't allow them to do that.
