Planted some tulip and hyacinth bulbs beginning of October here in the
Chicago area. The weather has been somewhat mild until now, and I am
these bulbs have sent up shoots (a inch or so high). Will this early
action in any way
harm the bulbs and is there anything to be done about it?
Write letters to your senators and congressmen complaining about it. Write
your local television stations complaining about the weathermen putting bad
juju on your garden and try to get them all fired.
You are another one not very observant. The plants do that every year
without any ill affect. So just learn to live with it and stop being such a
The idiot troll is you Joe Blough. You've never answered anybody's question
here. You only want to throw stone at anybody smarter than you, which
happens to be everyone else. Even my dead cat is smarter than you.
All you know about bulbs is what was posted in the replies before you
decided to darken this thread.
I disagree. We had very warm fall temperatures in the 70s and 80s and my
daffodils are sprouting now. Absolutely no chill period at all.
Need a good, cheap, knowledge expanding present for yourself or a friend?

I'm surprised they have taken so many years to start growing, and that you
can remember where you planted them all those years ago.
That's funny. That's exactly what everyone has been saying to you, fart
boy!!!! If you want to be a dimwit expect to be treated like one.
So what exactly qualifies a garden newbie like you to decide that the "bulbs
jumped the gun"? Nothing.
Your original posting was supremely idiotic and shows a total lack of
understanding of even the basics of the plants. Stop asking stupid
questions. The plants do this every year and have so for millions of years.
So just sit back and observe and don't demand to change their very nature of
being as if there is something wrong with it. You are in no position to
For your information, I am not a novice gardener. Been doing it for years.
However, in the past 15 years I have been planting bulbs here, I have never had
them pop up at the beginning of the winter. To me, this was an unusual event.
Maybe it happens to other people, but I never experienced it. I thought my
was perfectly legitimate.
Funny you use the term 'everyone' saying these things to me. If you look at the
thread, you are the only big mouth sounding off. Do you try and get your kicks
trying to prove your superiority to the world. I say you have one big complex.
suggest you look for the nearest pyschiatrist. You have got a big problem. And
please, don't respond to this as I have wasted enough of my time on you already.
Lighten up, Schwindu. You are wound up so tight you are going to give
yourself an aneurism by New Year's day.
You don't want me to respond to your bellicose babblings? Too bad if I'm
cutting into your time drooling at the senior center, you Geritol grouch!!!!
Nobody gives a flying fig how long you have been puttering around in the
garden yet still remain clueless. Maybe its just that your Alzheimer's is
getting to you and exacerbating your raging inferiority complex, you grumpy
At a guess, the guy with the funny latin handle is a defrocked priest,
serving time in the big house for molesting his Sunday schoolers.
It is quite annoying to be told you know nothing about some aspect of
gardening, especially by a punk troll.
