Answer: You should plant them as soon as possible, in containers, if necessary. Early spring-blooming bulbs may not grow and bloom, but later bulbs will still have enough time to grow roots before setting flowers. Use regular potting mix and plant bulbs about 2-inches apart in one-gallon containers. You can easily set the whole pot into the garden and cover the rim with soil - no one will know the difference! After the foliage begins to die, remove the pot and put it in an inconspicuous place outdoors. After allfoliage has died down, remove the bulbs from the pots, dry, and store them until next fall.
