“Scratch & Dent” bulbs are those that are showing some spots of penicillin mold from storage (harmless to your bulbs) or have broken dormancy and have started to sprout. Typically we plant these bulbs back into our field in the spring but this year has been so wet, new ground for these bulbs is not plantable with the tractor mounted planter. Bulbs with penicillin mold spots need not be cleaned before planting as the mold dies once it is in the ground.
