Hi,
I have a bunch of hibernating bulbs in small pots, do I need to keep watering them?
I have some tulips, daffodils (some in pots and some in the ground), asiatic lillies, crocus, grape hyacinth, and some other small bulbs I can't remembers their names.
Thanks
Regards

Welcome Error. :) The fact that most of your bulbs are in pots will mean they dry out quicker than in the ground. I would water them may be once a week if it's hot and dry or every two weeks just to keep them from shrivelling up. Moving them to a shady area of your garden will help too.

I moved them to an airy shed, I was just worried that they might rot if I water them too much.
It gets really hot here in summer, it's around 35°C now but soon it will be around 40°C, and sometimes even 45°C or 47°C.
Thanks for the advice :)

You're welcome. :) We've had similar temperatures to yours so far this summer which is unusual. I tend to think a good summer follows a bad winter which we've also had.
