I live in Columbus, OH. I buried some spring bulbs (daffodil, iris, crocus
etc.) around mid Oct.and covered with falling leaves. But several days ago,
I found some bulbs already begun to grow with leaves coming out from the
soil. Will these bulbs die in the winter? Did I plant these bulbs too early?
When is the most suitable time to bury spring bulbs in my area?
They don't need any protection. They have been doing it for millions of
years in the wild without protection. They are well adapted to the cold.
There really should be a list of bulbs that produce their foliage in that
autumn so that new growers don't panic every year when this happens.
Yeah, except many of the ones that produce their foliage in the autumn tend
to be rapid spreaders and weedy!!!
Its more likely its a strategy to dominate all the others in the immediate
area by getting a very early head start.
You are right that many gardeners tend to over plant and they need a not so
subtle reminder when to stop.
