overwintering my bulbs in containers - how?
I'm new to gardening and am getting addicted to them! I have a few questions though, on how to overwinter my lilies and tulips in pots - I'm a balcony gardener.
I know in zone 6 the winters can be pretty brutal. Should I put my bulbs in bigger pots - and maybe the types of pots should be taken into consideration also? My apartment is small, so it would be great if I could just leave them outside on my balcony instead of having to bring them in. I DO have a locker in the building, and I was wondering if it'd be too stupid of a thing to try - to leave the bulbs in a pot there? It'd be freezing still, but at least no threat from the snow... If so, do I need to water them once in a while? Or you think they'd be okay there on their own?
God... feel like these are such silly questions, but I've spent quite a sum on these bulbs this year and would like to be able to get them to bloom again next year. HELP!!
Thanks a bunch!
