Talkback: Summer-flowering bulbs

    I've found a forgotten  box of bulbs crocosmia meteore and small gladioli - am I too late to plant?

    Summer bulbs are in the shops now pinkpeony. Are these ones bought this year or last?   

    I'd give them a squeeze to see how firm they are, really old ones could either be soft and mouldy or dried up and mummified.  If they're still firm give it a go and pot them up.  The alternative is to bin them and buy again.

    kitty 2 thank you; I can feel two new containers coming on! the bulbs  arrived in February but I forgot about them until tidying the garage over Easter  - they look fine and show no signs of dryness or mould  So I'll try to get them planted this week, thanks again.
