Answer: If you can't get your bulbs into the ground, plant them in containers. Plant them as soon as possible. Bulbs store energy for growth and if you don't allow them to grow, they will die. Once you start watering, roots will form and leaves will appear. Allow the leaves to die down naturally (for storage next year). As soon as you get your landscape ready, plant the bulbs.
Best wishes with your new landscape!
