Anytime now. I planted mine about 10 days ago.

RE: Fall Bulbs

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.
