Black Thumb / Question on Tulip Bulbs
In early October I was gifted a bag of tulip bulbs (in Zone 5). I was ill at the time and did not have the energy or desire to plant them. They have been in my garage in the bag over the winter and I am wondering if there is anything I can do with them besides tossing them into the mulch pile. It's a shame. From what I've been reading, it's too late to plant them in the ground or in a pot. In my mind I was thinking I could plant them in a big planter in the Spring but now I see they needed time in November to grow roots...any hope or suggestions for me?
