Your bulbs and most of your perennials are shipped to you in their natural dormant stage. Don’t be alarmed if your plants appear to be dead or void of green leaves or sprouts. Almost all bulbs and perennials die back to the ground in autumn and early winter. Bulbs and plants are more easily transported in a dormant state than when they are actively growing. All bulbs and perennials should be planted in your garden as soon as possible to ensure the best success.
If you must delay planting, open the bags to permit air circulation and place them out of direct sunlight in a cool, well-ventilated room. Do not place the bulbs where they can freeze. If you have the space, storing the bulbs in the refrigerator is another excellent way to “hold them” prior to planting. If you choose this method of storing your bulbs, be sure not to store fruit with them, as this is detrimental to bulbs. Plant outdoors when the conditions have improved for your zone. When planting bareroot perennials, remember to soak them in water for 30 minutes prior to planting. Check the bag label for details.

I love Brecks bulbs. I have moved several times over the last two decades and I always start a new location with naturalizing bulbs. Brecks bulbs always perform well and the supersaks help me jump start beautiful beds of flowers.
