If you are storing (over wintering) tender summer blooming bulbs, or hardier spring bulbs, that you did not get in the ground in time, knowing how to store bulbs for winter will ensure that these bulbs will be viable for planting in the spring.
What you need to know and/or do:
- Carefully brush off any excess dirt.
- Do not wash the bulbs as this can add excess water to the bulb.
- Remove the bulbs from plastic bags, containers, or the bulbs will rot. It’s best to pack your bulbs in a dry cardboard box. Layer the bulbs in the box, with newspaper in between each layer.
Where you can store them:
- A closet is good, or a basement, that is not damp, or a garage is a good spot!
