Question on precooled lilies
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have a question for you. I ordered some precooled lily bulbs to be delivered Sept. 30. Instead they sent them in late July and they were left on the front porch in the sun. Needless to say, they got very hot. I called and they made the order good and will reship on correct date. I put the bulbs in the basement hoping to salvage something and everyone of them has sprouted.
My question is, do you think the new order will sprout early since they will be going into warm soil? If they sprout this time of the year, they will be goners. I think the precooled bulb idea was not a good one.
