First and foremost let me tell you what a pleasure it is to read this forum every day! Lots of good information.
I live in Questchester county in NY and my question is the following: Last year I got me lots of tulip, hyacinth and deffodils bulbs (about 60-20 of each). I decided to plant them around October of 2009, half of them on the ground and half in containers covered with mulch and left outside.
This year I can see the ones in the ground coming up nicely but... the ones inside the plastic containers... I have yet to see anything coming up.
Does this mean I've lost the bulbs because of all the cold and snow we had up here this winter?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
