Hi Folks,
I have dried and cleaned the bulbs from the patio pots I had planted over the Spring and Summer. Can they be replanted now and left out as very damp up here, planted and left indoors or should I store them in dry darkness till the Spring? Thank you in advance.



What you do depends on what bulbs you have. If you could supply that information, someone will be happy to advise you. :)

what bulbs are you talking about? this will make a difference.

Thank you all and sorry for the lack of clarity. Such is my organisation I did not label them (learning curve) but remember I put in tulips, snowdrops, crocus, Iris and Narcissi. There are different sizes so could probably identify them again if need to be seperated.

plant m back in now and they will perform for you next year. or they could go direct in the ground and have fresh bulbs for your pots. Some of these will produce good flowers others may be none. that will depend if you fed them after flowering.

Many thanks, like the idea of having new colour from fresh bulbs next spring so may replant these in beds I am laying out. Happy planting
