Indoor storage in dormancy
Please excuse me for asking such a basic question, but the search function in this forum hasn't been working for me in the last few days.
This spring, I received several pots of tulips and daffodils that have just died back. Having no outdoor space in which to plant them, I am considering methods to store these bulbs, either for forcing later or for next spring. In a rather warm apartment, is there any simple method of doing so? What is your preferred method / meduim? (I have heard that vermiculite works well.) Should they be watered? Refrigerated?
The second option is to Freecycle the bulbs, if storage doesn't seem viable. Hate to see "seasonal" plants discarded after blooming.
Thanks for your advice!
