Looking after bulbs

Peggy7Peggy7 Posts: 34

I have dug up some bulbs I have in an area of my garden because I am having some work done and I do not want to loose these bulbs.  The work will be about one month to complete before I can put them back into the ground.  How should I store them until I can replant them again?

    What bulbs are they? Snowdrops do not like being out of the ground for long, if they dry out they will not flower next year. Snowdrop bulbs I would pack in some peat or jus damp multipurpose compost.  Daffodils can be kept in a dry dark place and then replant before the end of the year. Planting in September is favoured if you want good flowers next year.

    Thank you very much for the advice! They are miniature Daffodils.  That’s a relief they will be okay!
