Long Term Bulb Storage
My parents are trying to sell their house located in Connecticut, zone 6. My father has hundreds of bulbs that he wants to take with him to the new home. He has an assortment of tulips, daffodils and crocus. There's probably some hyacinth in his collection as well. He has pulled them all out of the ground in anticipation of selling the house and has them stored in the garage. What is the best way to store them until he can plant them at the new home? It's a little unusual because the house may sell next week or it may sell in January. Potting them up isn't practical because he literally has hundreds nor does he have the space in the garage for all sorts of pots. I'd appreciate any suggestions that anyone can offer.
