protecting bulbs in containers

njitgradOctober 21, 2013

I don't have any room in my garage so I am considering burying my containers of bulbs in the raised beds of my veggie garden until they start to emerge in spring. Will this work?

Should I give them any sort of additional protection? I could always cover my entire 16'x16' enclosed garden in leaves from wall to wall. Putting leaves on just the beds will just get blown away in the winter time unless I have a way to cover them.

This should work fine for you in zone 6. If you can, put some additional mulch, soil or leaves over the sunken pots. Perhaps you could pile some leaves over the area and then throw enough soil or mulch on top to keep the leaves from blowing away.
