Can someone tell me what the ideal time for planting fall bulbs (Hyacinths,Scilla, Daffodils )would be in my zone (2B).

As long as the ground isn't frozen, they can be planted. If the roots have a chance to grow a bit before freezeup, that's better, but you don't want the bulbs to start growing. A maximum of a month before ground freezing is recommended by most people here.
