HELP! Spring-blooming bulbs sprouted now!

Posted by elbereth (My Page) on

I had potted narcissus and hyacinths from last year that I cut back and replanted. They've sprouted new leaves just now that the temperatures have started to dip below zero. I covered them up with more soil for now, but will they survive till spring? Will they even stop growing? Or should I bring them inside to bloom? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

RE: HELP! Spring-blooming bulbs sprouted now!

I am having the same problem with crocuses. I planted them three weeks ago, and we have such zig zag weather here in the winter. Last week we had 30's at night, this week, we're in the 60's. I'm thinking that I might just get to enjoy them over the winter since our winter temps will be similar to early spring in colder climates. The crocuses haven't broken through the top yet, I only know that they're trying because I found one that a critter had dug up. It had sprouts and roots, so I replanted it. Dang Armadillos!!!
