Slight problem with forced bulbs. :-/
I had this grand plan of putting my bulbs in the refrigerator earlier than normal so I could have blooms now through February. Great, except now I'm going on vacation for a week. (End of Jan - beginning of Feb)
The hyacinths most of all look ready to be taken out. All the bulbs have had their required time.
1. I don't want to miss the blooms while I'm away.
2. I don't have a cool place to keep them until the sunroom warms up a bit. (Hadn't thought of that back in Sept.)
3. Not crazy about letting my cats alone with all those flowers. My house is too tiny to keep them out of a room for a whole week with only a babysitter coming in once a day.
Any chance they'll be okay in the refrigerator until around Feb. 7th?
