preservation of tulip & daffodil bulbs dug up in spring while in bloom

Last weekend I had to dig up my bulb garden full of over 200 blooming tulips & remaining flowering daffodils. How should I deal with them at this point, making sure they receive the nutrients they need since they are no longer in the ground but still have all their leaves, when should I plant them - now or in fall, and how should I store them in the mean time? Thank you. Deb

Microclover lawns

Would it be advisable to overseed my blue grass lawn with microclover seeds? I've seen micro clover lawns in other parts of the US that were very nice. I don't anticipate having to use weed killer in this area but I wonder if there are other issues to consider. I understand that a clover lawn requires less fertilizer and also doesn't have high water needs.
I live near Boulder Co.
Thank you, Steve.

Colorado water : detoured, used effectively, or lost through evaporation?

Detoured water is that which is flushed down through a toilet, washed through a garbage disposal unit, or other wise washed down a plumbing line connected to the local sewage works. In a rural household it's the septic tank and drain field: the water, now in the ground, flows on to California. That's mostly true for the water processed in the city sewage works. Compare that with agricultural irrigation and escape through evaporation, , where the only effective water use is that which enters the plant root.

Rooting Ivy

I have tried twice to root ivy. Both times leaves began turning black and died. Attached is a pic of the latest try. I am using organic soil. I did use a rooting hormone. In the previous tries, I used a plant fertilizer. Thinking that was causing the starts to fail, I used no fertilizer with those in the pic. Starts are contained in a plastic, lidded container, sprayed every other day and are under grow lights for approximately 10 hours per day, at 60-65 degrees. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
