Bulbs sprouting.........................in refrigerator

kimcocoFebruary 22, 2010

Yes, I did it again. Didn't plant my bulbs in time.

Can I still plant them in the ground when it thaws enough? I'm not interested at this point in planting in containers, so wondering if I can just wait it out.

Most are daffodils, there are a few tulips. They are in good shape, but sprouting in my refrigerator.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You can always plant them in the ground and hope for the best next spring. It might be a 50/50 chance of getting blooms this year though. They will have had enough cooling time, but might not develop a good enough root system.

This is just a semi-educated guess from chilling bulbs in the refrigerator for several years. Others might have better answers. :-)
