Zone 8b/9a - too early to plant tulips in pots?
I bought some tulip bulbs last spring that flowered and went dormant after continuing to grow after the flowers had spent. Once the leaves died, i dug them up, let them dry off a little, then put them in the fridge. They've been in the fridge for about 3 months now and one of them is staring to sprout. Is it too early (Oct 14) to plant them in pots? They are small bulbs so I think they should be okay in a pot.
Any advice is appreciated - I'm in Houston Texas
