Jonquil stalks cut off for shipping
Online, I ordered heirloom Jonquil bulbs that have been freshly dug.Since they are blooming now, I requested that the stems remain as I would be planting them immediately.
I received them today and the stems have been cut almost all the way down to the bulb.
I have always left on my stalks after blooming so I am not sure what to do about planting these.
Since most of the green stalks are gone, I thought of potting them up shallow for now with whatever green left is exposed to the sun.
Then this fall plant them in the garden at the proper depth.
I am concerned that if I plant them in the garden now at the proper depth everything from the cut off stalks will be buried and may rot or not bloom next year.
We are still having some freezing nights and I thought if the bulbs are potted shallow for now, I can bring the pots into the garage on below freezing nights.
Will this work? Can any one advise me of the best way to make sure these bulbs survive and bloom next year?
