Exclamation Moving and storing bulbs

Going to be moving shortly and I have a few tulip and daylily bulbs I want to keep with me. Is there a way to store them for awhile until I can get them in the ground? It might be a few months before I can get them where I want them.

Thanks!

Will you be able to plant them by fall? I moved in May several years ago, so I dug up my bulbs dirt and all, and kept them in pots and kept them watered until I could plant them in October in their new home.

They've come back better than ever!

Default Similiar situation...too many bulbs to keep in dirt

Hi! I am moving and it will be a few months before I can plant my daylily bulbs that I am digging up to take with me. I have hundreds, 6 bucketfuls, to be exact. It may be a few months before I can replant them.

How can I safely store them? Placing them in pots and dirt would be overwhelming, I would think.

Thanks,

Linda

ok, off topic but I just planted a bunch of new bulbs last weekend and the dang RABBITS dug them ALL up!!!!

You can keep the bubs in your fridge too--but if you have them in dirt pots you might not want to do that . They just need to be kept 'cool'.
