Storing bulbs.

Postby Cosmic » Mon Nov 04, 2013 3:20 pm

I am digging up a lot of bulbs that need thinning out and replanting - daffodils, dutch iris, babianas, star flowers, freesias, nerines, bluebells by the million, tulips and lots of others whose names I forget. I want to store them for planting at the appropriate time next year and am putting them into paper bags in the hothouse for now. However, I'm not sure if I should keep them warm or cool. Whadyareckon?

I found it helps to give them a dusting of sulphur before storage Cosmic
