Bulbs bloom according to the weather so there are no guarantees, but usually bulbs are planted in the ground October through late December in Georgia. You can try to time the flowering by pre-cooling the bulbs for a 12-16 weeks in ventilated packages in the bottom of your refrigerator at 40-50 degrees F. before planting. They will usually bloom within a month after being planted in the ground.

Hope they bloom right on schedule for you!
