The emails have started. It seems some of us never got around to planted our spring bulbs. We've all done it at some time; bought bulbs, but never planted them in the fall. I realize some of you still can't work, or perhaps even see, your soil yet. So if you do have spring blooming bulbs you stored away, at leasat check that they are still firm and plump, in a cool, dark spot.
We've heard from gardeners who've managed to salvage their bulbs, despite the oops. A couple of folks potted up their bulbs and put them in a cold garage to chill for the remainder of the winter. One person successfully stored her bulbs in the refrigerator, in a paper bag. Another simply spread them on the ground and dumped a large bag of soil over them.
So you do have options. Here are some more ideas of what to do with your unplanted spring blooming bulbs. If you have a trick to share, we'd love to hear it.
