Answer: Your spring blooming bulbs will need a 12 week period of cold and dark to force them into bloom. A garage is a good place to store them during this cold treatment. You can bring the bulbs indoors when the tips have grown about one-inch tall. Make sure they're in a cool place indoors or they will grow too quickly and the stems and foliage will be pale and spindly. Ideal temperature is 50F - 55F degrees. Once the flowers and foliage have emerged, you can keep them at average room temperatures.
