I've been dying all year to plant spring bulbs, and for the last few weeks, I've been filling an online shopping cart from Breck's with all kinds of beautiful bulbs.
Today, though, I was in Costco buying mundane stuff like toilet tissue and saw they have spring bulbs in.
Ohhhh, some of them were so BEAUTIFUL I couldn't resist!! I ended up buying... um... over 300 bulbs (yipes!)... crocus, hyacinth, and three types of tulip (they were too beautiful to narrow down to one or two!)... but it's too early to plant them, right? Should I refrigerate them then plant later in the month? or is it okay to plant them now?
I'm a total bulb newbie but am drooling at the thought of having a yard full of gorgeous spring flowers, for the first time in my life... BUT!!!! I always hear about people having to dig them up every year etc. That completely intimidates me because I have no idea how I'd even find the 300+ bulbs I'll be planting.
What types of bulbs do I need to dig/refrigerate every year? and when? I'm in zone 7b and we do get very cold winters (although it could be 25 degrees one day then 70 the next during winter).
