Most bulbs will die if planted to late
or are in a so bad shape that they don't flower the first years

Narcissus don't make roots if the temperature from the ground drops below +7ÂșC
same for Lilium candidum

Tulips and Hyacints can be planted late
after planting cover well
and they will root in a week and are hardy then

> Dear Fellow Horticulturists,
> Every year around this time, local stores let go what they have left of their fall bulbs [tulips, etc.] at really cut prices. I have been thinking of buying some, but the ground here is just about frozen. Can anyone advise if the bulbs can be stored for planting  next fall?
