I dont have a backyard, I have a porch and I put my flowers there. Is it ok to buy a big planter and put Tulips and Daffadils in and will they live?

It might get a little too cold for your bulbs if you plant them in containers and leave them outdoors over the winter months so here's what I'd do: purchase your bulbs in the fall and put them in your refrigerator to chill for about 3 months. Then plant them in your containers in February and take them outdoors. They should bloom right on time.
