I purchased a number of hyacinth bulbs and procrastinated in getting them in the ground during the fall season. We have been experiencing below freezing temps for the past couple months though the past few days the highs have been in the 40s. Can I still plant them and have them come up this year? Should I wait a bit longer? Thanks for any replies.

I just heard a podcast on youbetyourgarden.org. If you can dig a hole, go ahead and get them planted. They might bloom a little later than other bulbs but they'll fare better in the long run. Check out the website for more details.

Excellent! Just checked the site you mentioned and found it had just what I was looking for. Thanks so much, Cindy!

You are so welcome. I listen to the podcasts in the car 'cause I never sit still long enough otherwise. The podcast made me feel guilty about some smaller daffodil bulbs I had dug up last fall during tree removal and they're still sitting naked in a pot in my heated garage. With a little warmup here the next couple of days, I could at least get them planted and buried in pots in the ground until I can figure out what to do with them.
