Refrigerator or Freeze bulbs

I didn't get my bulbs (Ranunculus) in the ground in time is it safe to freeze or refrigerate them. If so how do I package them.

No, you can not freeze them, they are tender bulbs.

I would keep them in a DRY cool spot; 45-50* in a paper bag. Depening on your fridge temp, it may work to store them there.

Have you grown ranunculus before?

This is my first year growing them and I am just starting to see buds! I am very excited : )


RE: Refrigerator or Freeze bulbs

Just plant them. You aren't going to be able to keep them over until next year when it is the proper time to plant. They will either rot or dry up.

Definitely do not put them in the fridge or freezer.
