Planting bulbs

This question was asked by

I purchased a large number of bulbs yesterday from your stall at Wisley.
My understanding is that it is best to wait to plant tulip bulbs when it is colder, late October to November. Do you agree?
If so, is it ok to store the bulbs in a dry garage in their sacks and brown paper bags?

Yes – you need to wait until the first frosts as they will kill any virus’s in the soil. You can store your tulips as they are in a cool, dark place like a garage etc. Ensure any rodents can’t get to them.
