Spring Flowering Bulbs

Karl Foord - Extension Educator, Horticulture

The recent snowfall and lower than normal temperatures should not harm the flowers derived from spring flowering bulbs. Low temperatures above 28 F and day temperatures in the 30s and 40s will not harm these cold tolerant frost tolerant plants.

However, if the temperatures drop into the low 20s or high teens, these plants can be injured.

Enjoy these hints of spring.
