Did you forget to plant your bulbs it is not to late

Tulips and Daffodils require a min of 12 weeks for a rooting period. Simply place them in a pot with at least 2 inch's of soil below them. Cover with soil, water in and place in a cold, dark garage or cellar.

I don't know much about flowers or bulbs, but I have some under a tree that came out around November, I believe. We moved here in September so I didn't know they were there. Is there any way of knowing what kind they are before they bloom?

Thank you for sharing this, Pat!
What about hyacinths? Should I plant my bulbs in a garden or keep them in a pot in a cold basement? They have started withering:(

Thanks, that is really good to know :) Sadly no gardening for me this year, at least nothing involving tulips or daffodils. I might plant cilantro tho, I use it often and the one from the store is full of pesticides...

r.r. I think you will have to wait until the bulb blooms to find out what it is. I may be wrong but as far as I know there is now way to identify the bulb, I did a quick search with no real results. You need the leaf of the plant to give you an idea of the plants id.

I keep looking at the tulips at work wistfully, but I am trying hard - very, very hard, to exercise some self control, lol. There is so much that I need to get done and I just can't spend all my money on flowers! I tried to get some tulip bulbs to rebloom last year, but I only got them far along enough to start seeing leaf shoots. :-(

One day...

I guess I'll wait then...I thought about pulling them because I was planning on growing something else there, but I'm curious now and I'd like to see what they are.

You still have time to plant crocus, hyacinth, daffodil, and tulip bulbs. I have been planting tulip bulbs since early September.
