forgotten crocus bulbs..zone 5..end of march
I know, I'm a bad person. I ordered a bunch of bulbs last fall, and got a lot of them planted, but my eyes were bigger than my stomach...if you know what I mean.
So anyway, I have a bunch of crocus bulbs that have wintered on the basement floor in the dark. The bulbs are firm and have half inch or so of growth, but no roots. We are having colder than usual weather here in southern wisconsin - 40s during the day, below freezing at night, My daffodils are coming up outside, but only just...they are about an inch or two tall.
So, can these poor crocus bulbs be saved? What do you recommend?
