What's the latest time to plant tulips, Daffodils, etc in De, Pa?
I ordered about 50 double and fancy tulips, Alliums, Fritillaria, Daffodils, etc. just yesterday. They should be in by next Friday or so. That will be Dec 9th.
The weather around here has been very warm for the last 5-6 weeks, and again today it's about 57 degrees. We've only had 1-2 light frosts so far, and the average low temps in Nov were 42-52 degrees! It has gotten down into the mid-high 30's in the last 2 nights.
So, if they were planted 4-6 weeks ago, they would've been pretty warm anyway, and wouldn't have 'wintered' very much anyway. I did plant about 15 Daffodils I bought at Lowes 15 days ago or so, as I bought them 1.5 months ago and didnt get around to planting them til 15 days ago.
So, is it OK to plant bulbs in early to mid December in this area, or is that too late, and they wont bloom next year?
