Extinct bulbs & cages

Hi all!
I am proud to be the caretaker of a couple of extinct and near-extinct hyacinth and crocus varieties. Knowing the moles and voles things these are a tasty snack, I want to plant them in bulb cages.

I've never seen these before and could use some advice. How big should I go? Are there baskets some prefer over another type? Will I need to dig these up and divide, replant, etc?

Advice would really be appreciated, since I want to do my best to help repopulate these bulbs while enjoying them!

Thanks,
Christine
