I've been trying to wait for it to get cold enough down here to plant my tulip bulbs, but it's been in the 70-80 all winter. I put my bulbs in the fridge, how long should I leave them in there and when should I plant them?

I know you're pain flw

If you've had them in the frig for a while hopefully they've been tricked into thinking they've had winter so go ahead and plant them.

might want to give them 'till mid march. should be 60-90 days if i remember correctly. just make sure you don't put any apples in the fridge with them!

and, if you are in beaufort, which side of beaufort are you on? i go to parris island about once a month to the bank, then hubby and i usually have dinner at outback!

Yep Jiffys RIght!! No apples in the same bin as any bulbs, the apples put off a gas that promotes blooming ,, I just planted some bulbs Yesterday, again Monica like you was wanting for the weather,, But they have been in the fridge for about 2 months maybe even longer, But for a rushed planting 4-6 weeks should be okay six weeks is better But I've planted some at 4 wks cold storage and they came up fine.
