Can I keep daffodil bulbs in cool storage?
I may get some freshly dug daffodil bulbs in trade, and wondered if I can keep them in cool storage until fall. I could plant them in a large pot and then put them in storage when the foliage dies back or just place them in a box and put them in the cool storage.
One of our bedrooms was added on to our original house - long before we bought it - and there is a crawl space under the bedroom, instead of basement, and we can access it by a door. I have 100% success over wintering my dahlias,cannas, and amaryllis bulbs there. I think that the temperature stays pretty much the same all year round. It never freezes and never gets too warm there.
What's my chances of keeping the bulbs alive there until fall?
