What kind of bulbs did you plant? How big are the pots?

Snow is insulating so you don't need to protect them from snow, in fact the more snow covering them the better because snow protects from cold. Cold temperature before the snow covers them is more likely to be a problem. Do you know what the low temperature is predicted to be? If you don't want to risk leaving them out, can you put the pots in a garage or something?

These are the containers and some space under the shrubs I was planning to put other containers under them
Containers are on the patio now

They are tulip bulbs. The pots would be better off against the wall then under the bush. Walls insulate also.
