Bulbs for Spring
Brian Greenhouse Expert The season has arrive, when it is time to begin over wintering tulip bulbs and other spring flower bulbs. You can plant them in the ground, or if you are unable to do that, place them in pots and store them in an area that is protected from the elements. A secluded corner of your greenhouse, under a greenhouse bench, or hanging from a bag on your work station are all acceptable bulb storage spaces.Another option is to cover the bulbs with natural debris such as leaves, mulch, or grass clippings and let the bulbs remain outside. When winter arrives, cover the bulbs with snow.

In the spring, when the bulbs will begin to push from the ground, gently remove the debris and keep the bulbs moist, but not wet. Follow these steps to enjoy early spring blooms!
