:( :( :(

Went to Costo.  They had a GORGEOUS bag of bulbs - tulips, daffodils, muscari.

 

Came home and planned.  Planted carefully.

 

Got hit with a week of 90 degree weather and a day of rain.

 

 

EVERYTHING GREW! 


The frost is definitely going to be here soon.  Are these done for?

Well, yes the flower will die in the frost.  But it will bloom again next year.  For future reference you should have waited until first frost to plant bulbs

I brought my tulips and daffodils pots indoors when they bloom earlier than expected one year. Are yours outdoors in the soil? There are DIY frost coverings that you can use.

These are outdoor plants - part of the landscape and a frost covering cannot help.  We will have negative degree weather for several months.  I'm just wondering if this will kill the plants as a whole forever and ever. ;)

Thank you - I had wondered when I should have planted them.  That warm weather really set me up - We'd had several COLD nights and I thought Fall was upon us and then BAM had July weather! ;)

 

I was SO sad that I thought I had ruined all my bulbs - it is a LOT of bulbs.
