Bulbs already coming up!

Only planted these Anenome de Caen last week and some of them are already up! What do i do - complete novice here? Will they come up again in spring? Thanks

    Some bulbs will grow and then slow down again when weather cools. However, have you made sure you've planted them at the correct depth?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Thanks, Yes - was first time so measured out - oh well, might put them somewhere cooler in hope they slow.

    Are they in a pot? When it cools down, the growth will slow down too.
    Nothing to worry about. Happens with all sorts of bulbs, depending on where you live  :)

  • Yes, in a pot. Just hope same doesn't happen to my bulb lasagnes! Thanks x

  • The weather will affect your bulbs whatever you do.  Perhaps we are going to have to learn to adjust our expectations of when something should flower ?

    My grape hyacinths are up already. It's normal. They'll pause when the weather cools down and then flower in spring.
  • Mine too @JennyJ, even a few crocus have appeared.
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.
