early sprouting bulbs
Hey folks, a query for you bulb fans. I have two elephant ear bulbs (one black and one normal green) and a bunch of hardy glad. bulbs. This is the first year of working with bulbs that when I checked on them in March and now in April, they have sprouted like crazy. They are in a cool area without light but both types of bulbs (especially the glads) have sprouts that are already at least 4 inches long and tons of roots. My question is will they be alright? My zone requires me to plant them in May/June at least for the elephant ears. I had a similiar problem with Dahlia's and they didn't grow well that year and the following year they were even worse so I ended up throwing them out. Am I worrying for nothing or should I take steps. I suppose I can plant my elephant ear in a container in the house for now but I have too many Glads to do that.
