I have noticed that quite a few garden centres are selling off bulbs which should have been planted around Feb/March If I buy them now while they are on offer, will they keep until next year and if so what it the best way to store them? Thank you

On plant Bulbs



no they wont keep or at least that is what I have found. plant them and they may grow but don't expect them all to survive.

I have had mixed results, depending on how firm the bulb is if it has started into growth etc.

Their chances are still better planted now, than waiting until next spring. If they grow, they may not bloom until next summer. Be sure to feed them a couple of times as they grow, to help make up for lost ground.

Thanks for that information you two. I think I'll wait to buy them next year ;-)
