IDENTIFY FLOWER BULBS

So, it occurred to me,  to take pictures of the flower bulbs i am going to sow this season (WINTERS). I thought it might be of help to some of you having a stash of non-labelled bulbs.

This is a handy guide on HOW TO IDENTIFY WINTER FLOWER BULBS. I shall be adding more pics as i plant bulbs in different seasons. CLICK HERE TO STAY UPDATED.  Also, as these flowers bloom, i will add a picture of blooms next to the bulb so that it becomes more relatable.




You may also want to checkout a similar SEED IDENTIFICATION GUIDE  i posted few days ago.

P.S. Readers are invited to contribute to the database by sharing pics of bulbs/blooms from their own collection. Due credit will be given. The idea is to make a complete database for easy reference, at one place.

    To make space I had to finally uproot my tuberose bulbs still green. Now they have been put in the sun to dry.

    I see you have done the same. Any past experience do they come up that way?
    All I know is letting the leaves dry and then uprooting.

    You are doing it right! Now you can either replant the bulbs in any spare container- a mug, cup, bottle, tub etc and well-watered, they will continue to multiply OR simply dust off the bulbs, check that they are firm to touch and completely dry. Remove the roots n foliage, wrap loosely in newspaper or a paper bag. Make sure there is no dampness and keep at a well-ventilated dark spot. This sounds lengthy but is a quick and easy procedure.
