Bulbs chilled too long?

Reply Fri 19 Sep, 2008 03:29 pm
Early last fall I bought my usual 600-750 tulip bulbs at Lowes and chilled them in a refrigerator out in the garage for what I thought would be 6 weeks. I was very pregnant but didn't think that would get in the way of my annual planting weekend. Long story short baby came early, bulbs never got in the ground. They are to this day still in the garage refrigerator, one year later. Are they any good to plant this fall or must I buy all new?

just plant em and see!. Dont ask us to look into a crystal ball. Ive seen bulbs that were frozen for a long time do ok when plnted. Many tulips dont naturalize at all so you may have a number of them that arent viable, but we have no way of knowing which ones.

Take yer bay outside in the fall (Oct) and plant em.
