I bought some weeks ago. Do any of you plant them. I forgot how to do it.
I buy them every year and keep in refrigerator.
Force them 3 to 5 at a time in a pretty, shallow, flat container with rocks or marbles and have them in the house all winter. They smell so good! Then when finished, I let them dry off and plant them in the yard in the spring. Takes a couple years, but they do bloom again out there.
To get blooms, you put the bulbs down on the rocks, add water, put in cool, semi-shaded place until roots form to hold the bulbs up, then put them in a sunny window until you start to see bloom tips. Then I put them where I want them inside. Be sure to keep the water level up in the container so the roots are wet. Could put few pieces of agri. charcoal to keep the water sweet.
A few years Sam's Club had a big bag of 30 and I shared bulbs for Christmas gifts to neighbors, along with fudge, etc.
I love that springtime scent on my kitchen table when the snow is flying outside!
That sounds great. Thank you. I hadn't thought of keeping them in the refrigerator because I thought they didn't need a chill time, but it might keep them from growing too soon. Some of mine are already sprouting from being in their box in the warm house. 3 to 5 at a time is a good idea because my 25 bulbs will last longer that way. I got mine at Sam's. They sent all their bulbs back to the vendor because of Christmas. I was looking for more crocus and daffodils last weekend.
