PostBy: ScubaSteve On: Wed Oct 21, 2009 6:12 pm

I decided to plant some sping flowering bulbs a few weeks ago. Why are some of them coming up now?? I know its been warm out, but not incredibly warm. I planted daffodils, grape hyacynths, and crocuses. They were planted to the required dpeth. Has anyone ever heard of this??

You put them in the ground a bit too soon. They may be fine come spring, time will tell.

My wife did the same thing. I told her to wait until its near freezing, or wait until the beginning of spring, but she wanted to get them in the ground. :shock:

They were harvested too early, so the timing is a little off. Not ideal, hit with booster when they freeze.
