Those containers are too small in my opinion. I think you may be able to get away with a pot about a foot deep at the minimum since you have to plant the bulbs fairly deep and still have soil below that for them to grow in. Peat and perlite are fine in a potting medium.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
