Can I plant my Lilly of the Valley bulbs in May or wait for fall?
Growing up in France I looove - and have been missing for 20 yrs!... - my Lilly of the Valley, their amazing fragrance... and what they used to represent for me in the spring!.. I've never found the bulbs or pots - or never thought about it - on time to plant them and enjoy them at the right time...:-)
I finally found some LOV pips but it's already May 6th. So I do not know, and can't find anywhere, if I can plant them now or if I should wait till fall?..
I plant in containers on my N.E. terrace in NYC and can't wait to see my LOV grow - even with no flowers this year of course - and have them bloom next spring...:-)
Can someone help me and tell me what to do?
Can I plant them in the containers now? Can I start them in indoors pots? If so, will they grow and come back next spring?
Can LOV be forced indoor in any other season than winter? Like now?... lol...
Or should I store them till fall? How then?... Should they stay in the frig?
Or should I just return them - can do that with Home Depot... and buy new ones later? When and where should I buy them, then, to finally smell my LOV next spring?... :-)
Thanks for your help...
