I have some bulbs in pots (snowdrops, daffodils) which did reasonably well this spring, and am planning to add some siberian squalls for next season. Bulbs make me nervous because I can't see how they're doing for most of the year.
After a bit of surfing around I use the following approach: Very well drained potting mix, water and fertilise during the growing season (including autumn) and let them dry out a little (not completely) over the summer.
For much of the year, of course, there's not a lot to see. So my question is, can I put them in a cool cellar over the summer and autumn, or do they need light and/or temperature cycles for reasons of dormancy breaking etc?
Thanks for any information,
