I've just lifted the tulip and daff bulbs from a couple of large pots. The bulbs are solid, I chucked a few which were slightly mouldy or soft.
The basic question is as above. Are they worth keeping and if so what should I do with them? (Polite answers please as I have heard they should be stored in the dark). Can I just plant them into borders now and let them get on with it? Should they be stored? or should I just chuck them out??
Yes, absolutely fine to plant them in the borders - I usually let them dry off in the mini greenhouse and plant them in the garden in the autumn.
I would let the Tulips dry off & plant in the Autumn, but I would plant the daffs straight away.
Or you can dry them off and use in your tubs next year, plant end of Sept ish, i dont find tulips so good, but worth a try in the garden, plant in November. I had a fantastic show of second year daffs this spring.
