Acquired 3 different bulbs early....what to do?
I got a great deal on some plants, but am wondering just how good of a deal it will turn out to be.....
I purchased a bag of 10 lilium 'stargazer' bulbs. I've seen mixed reviews about this aesthetic appeal of this lily, I've seen forced, and garden kinds....I like them, and love the smell. Seemingly minor bulb damage and 5 of them have a stem starting.
Another purchase was 2 dahlia 'kogane fubuki' tubers (tubers, right?)...but they look more like 15 smaller ones making 2 greater ones. Always loved dahlia's, but am very new to growing them, can't spot any "eyes" that I think they need those to grow. Tubers are not in great shape, some smaller pieces are broken off and some others twisted where they meet.
Last was a canna 'Bengal tiger'. Looks like it will live to me. A little rot set in the stem parts and the tips of bulbs.
I can supply pictures tomorrow for some feedback on whether or not they look viable, but for now.....how do I go about storing them? The only cool area's I have is an unheated garage, a fridge, basement that probably stays around 60F and a room upstairs that might be a bit cooler than the basement. This winter has been pretty darn cold, I think the 20F below zero nights are over, but still getting single digit lows... so I'm not sure if the dahlia, and canna can be stored in there....maybe not even the lilies?
Sorry if this seems longer than it should be.....I'm so excited for spring I can barely think straight.lol
