Dig up bulbs now for forcing during the winter. Put them in the refrigerator for about a month. Then plant them in pots and let them grow. Then they will be ready to plant for flowers at Christmas time.

I never planted my tulips (early bloom and later varieties) or my grape hyacinths this past fall. They are still in my fridge. Does anyone know how to force any of these indoors in a spare front room (north)? Do I need a growing light, as I have only sun in my kitchen which faces south, but has narrow windowsills? I would like flowers for Easter or May, for Mother's Day, if possible. Thanks for any help.

I am forcing Hyacinth bulbs, but I don't know what to do with them after they have bloomed. What do I need to do so they will bloom again? Thanks so much.
