Help! Just Planted Bulbs: To Water or Not To Water???

elleni(4a)December 3, 2011

OK! I went out in the 32ð F cold today and planted all the bulbs I had space for from my Black Friday box. (The rest will be potted and forced or sent further South.) I finished just as the snow started to fall here in zone 4a. While the ground is NOT frozen, the temps here are now stuck at Midwest Winter-- below freezing for HIGHS from now on. My problem is, with the freezing temps, I am worried to water the bulbs in. I didn't water, but I could, if I must. What should I do?? Someone tell me quick!!

I would water so they can start sending out some roots.
