Planting times

This question was asked by

Yesterday at the edenbridge and oxted show I bought Tulip and Lily bulbs. I intend to put both into pots. Should I plant now (Will they dry out if I don’t?) Or should I wait?

Hi –

You need to plant your lily bulbs immediately as they will flower in about 10 weeks time.

Your tulip bulbs can be planted now or kept somewhere cool and dark until you are ready to plant them. Ideally you need to plant them within the next month or so.
