Forcing Scilla sibirica

Has anyone forced Scilla sibirica? I have forced them several times, but I would very much welcome suggestions on timing or any other information regarding these little gems. Thank you.

RE: Forcing Scilla sibirica

All of the really early little bulbs, like Squill, crocus, etc., are really easy to force, IMO. Just pot in fall, let them root, chill for at least 10 weeks, then force. I've done little bulbs, including these, many years. I overwinter some in my cold, just above freezing garage, for early and mid-winter forcing, and others outdoors under mulch to bring in for late winter/early spring forcing or for very early spring containers outdoors.
