Dodging elements/wk schedule: are my lilies worth planting?
I got all my lily bulbs and tulip bulbs ready to plant about 3 weeks ago...dipped in Ropel etc.
Dot Com asiatic, speciosum rubrum/album
I am so disappointed..I was going to try to FINALLY plant them today (I've been dodging rain/snow and darkness falling before I get home from work and a hard family situation we didn't foresee that has taken a lot of personal time)...
I looked today, and the roots are pretty dried out. I should have put them back in the peat mixture, but thought they'd be ok. I don't know HOW dry is too dry to bother with. The bulbs themselves are moist, but the roots are dry.
Is it TOO LATE to bother with the lilies? Should I just concentrate on getting the tulips in instead?
