What to do When Your Bulbs Arrive

Don't be alarmed if your plants appear to be dead or void of green leaves or sprouts - most bulbs and perennials are shipped in their natural dormant stage. Almost all of these plants die back to the ground in autumn and early winter, and are more successfully transported in this dormant state than when they are actively growing. All bulbs and perennials should be planted in your garden as soon as possible to ensure the best success.

If you must delay planting, open the bags to permit air circulation and place them out of direct sunlight in a cool, well-ventilated room like a basement or garage. Do not place the bulbs where they can freeze. If you have the space, store the bulbs in a refrigerator. However, do not store bulbs near fresh fruit, as fruit emits gasses that can damage the bulbs.
