Tulip Bulbs Question
I was given 70 longstemmed mixed tulip bulbs before Christmas. When I started to plant them in November, I read in the instructions that in my zone #8 they would need to be pre-chilled 6-8 weeks before planting. I put them in the refrigerator and with the hustle and bustle of Christmas, I didn't get them planted. We have already had some low 20's temps; however, the forecast for the next couple of weeks is for warmer weather (60's in day - high 30's and 40's at night). I will be planting them in a raised bed that has soft topsoil and compost. Should I plant them now or can I wait until Spring?
