jonquils summer storage and trades

I will have hundreds of Yellow Jonquils to dig and divide up when they finish blooming later on in May.
Can these be dried like onions and then packed away in a mesh bag so they don't rot....? Need some expert advice. If this goes well I will have some to trade as there is an abundance.

RE: jonquils summer storage and trades

You need to let the foliage ripen (flop and turn brown) before digging them. I have much better luck with digging the bulbs and replanting them where I want them than I do with summer storage. I have tried storing them in a cool dark place with plenty of air circulation, etc., but inevitably I lose probably 20 percent of them. When I re-locate them, virtually all will survive, and most will bloom the first spring. I will watch this post, to see if someone has a better way for summer storage.
