Sprouted Oriental Lily Bulbs
My husband brought home some oriental lilies that his sister bought and decided she didn't want. They are from a big box store and the packages have not been opened. On close inspection I noticed that a couple of the bulbs have sprouted. Will they be okay until I can get them planted late April early May?
Great question. Try to find a cool dark place to store the bulbs until planting time. If the bulbs continue to grow you will need to pot them up and move them to a sunny window or under artificial lights. Once the danger of frost has passed you can gradually introduce the plants to the outdoors. Hardening off greenhouse or indoor grown plants prevents sunburn and reduces transplant shock when they are placed outdoors in the ground.
