I wasn't able to get my bulbs planted during the fall. It's the first of December, should I wait until we have a fairly warm day (If we have one) and plant my bulbs? Or can I wait until early spring to plant them?
Thanks and Have a great day!

Spring flowering bulbs need to go into the ground as soon as possible. Most require 12-14 weeks of cold temperatures in order to bloom. If you cannot get your bulbs in the ground right away, store them in the refrigerator (to give them the required chilling period). You can then plant them in containers and set them outdoors. They should bloom right on time for you.
