I have acquired about 2 or 3 hundred tulip bulbs and am hoping to get them planted.
Last year we tried storing some bulbs in black plastic bags in the refrigerator all winter and planted them as soon as the ground was workable. Nothing happened; about 3 or 4 out of 2 dozen came up.
I am wondering if anyone has a good way to keep them over the winter, just in case we can't get them planted. One person has said to freeze them, that they have to freeze in order for them to keep and bloom in the Spring. Living in Northern Michigan, and as cold as it can be here, being in the freezer is not going to be too different than being in the garden.
We are also going to put some in some flower boxes and store them in the garage over the winter and bring them out in Spring.
Anyone with any good information on this subject, please answer. We will greatly appreciate it.
