This is my first fall/winter in NE and I have a gardening question about bulbs. In the Pacific NW I could pot up bulbs and keep them protected up next to the house and then just plant the whole pot in the garden in the spring and then remove the pot as the leaves faded after blooming. I was wondering if I can do that here. I would put the pots either in my garage or in my basement. Is that doable? Would they need to be sparingly watered? I'm near Concord NH. Thanks for any insight on this.
