bulb issues

discusmikeFebruary 22, 2014

We have had extreme cold recently, the snow is finally melting and I've noticed dafodils and tulips sprouting out of the ground, I'm in zone 7, should I be worried? Will they make it? Why so early? Thanks

They are naturally adapted to early rising. No need to be concerned.

They always do this. I'm more concerned if they *aren't* breaking ground by February.

Perfectly normal. This year was actually the first year in 25 that I had nothing at all in bloom in February. Everything was a month late. It's blooming now, though, and is glorious.
