I bought tulip and daffodils in containers at your store and wondered when I can plant them outside? Will they be ok if it snows? or should I wait?

When the flowers are spent, cut off the flowering stem but leave the foliage to ripen on its own. After it turns brown you can clip it off the bulbs and plant them in the ground or store them in a cool place until you can dig the soil and plant them. Once the leaves die down the bulbs go into dormancy and snow won't bother them.
