How long can I store daffodil bulbs?
I'm in the process of moving from Minnesota to Oklahoma and I've brought along some elements of my garden with me. In early May, in Minnesota, we had a late winter and I had the chance to dig up the daffodil bunch before they were more than an inch above ground. I shipped them to Oklahoma and potted them up. They grew up nice and green, but only two flowers. That's how they've been doing for a couple years now.
Then they withered. Yesterday I needed to move a lily into the sun and I dug up the daffodil bulbs and put the lily where they were. So now I have a bunch of daffodil bulbs... about three cups of them. How should I store them? Should I pot them back up elsewhere? They're still not done landscaping at my new house (it keeps raining here in Oklahoma) so I can't move them into their permanent home until later.
Will they survive if I put them in a paper bag in the pantry and leave them there for a few months?
