Overwintering bulbs in pots
I have several bulbs that I am planning to layer in a large pot and overwinter in my attached unheated garage. I've been researching gardenweb to determine just how to go about doing this. Almost everything I've seen has to do with forcing bulbs before they would naturally bloom. All I want is to have the bulbs blooming in a container at their own pace. My only reason for not leaving the container outside all winter is to keep it from freezing solid.
Is it alright to plant the pot full of bulbs in late September and just put it outside until the temperatures start dipping below freezing? My plan would be to keep it in the garage, watering every few weeks, until the weather warmed up above freezing again. Is this a recipe for success or a plan that will end in disaster? Any insight you can offer would be very much appreciated!
