crocus coming up in my lasagna containers
This is my first season planting bulbs in containers. I have two containers in my garage that I planted lasagna style (crocus, daffodils, and tulips). I just started to see the sprouts of the crocus a couple of days ago (see pics from today below) and with the temps above freezing for the first time in weeks here in NJ, I decided to bring the containers out into the sun next to my garage. That is the right thing to do, am I correct?
Unfortunately this temperature moderation will be short-lived with colder temps in the 30s after the weekend and into the single digits on some nights this upcoming week.
My plan is to always bring the containers in at night, but taking them out during the day is a question mark if the temps will be below 32F. Will my crocus continue to grow without any direct sunlight for a few days in the garage when temps are below freezing and I can't risk killing the tulip bulbs that come up later?
I also have six containers that I buried in my raised garden vegetable beds which I covered with a thick layer of leaves and had burlap stapled over the frames to keep the leaves in to prevent the bulbs from freezing. Right now all of my beds are buried deep in snow so I can't even see them. When should I consider digging the containers out of the beds and moving them to the garage?
