What is the best way to store lily bulbs?


Answer by  Shelley70 (285)

You can wrap bulbs in damp-not wet- newspaper so the bulbs don't dry out. Make sure the roots are covered. Then you may place them in empty onion bags. Store in a cool dry place (such as a basement.)

You should store bulbs in a cool dark and dry environment. This will prevent decay for the longest time. A wine celler is an excellent location if you have one.

Once lily bulbs have been dug, they must be dried out to ensure that they don't rot while being stored. Place the bulbs in a cool, dry area with good air circulation for a few days. After drying, store the lily bulbs in dry peat in a cool, dry, and dark area where they will not be disturbed.

Lily bulbs should be stored for the winter months in ventilated bags (for example, burlap) with a little bit of slightly moist peat moss. The bag should then be keep somewhere that is cool, dry, and dark. A good place would be a basement, garage, or even an unused kitchen cupboard.
