I was just going to keep them in the attic until the harsh frost had gone then put the tubs in the garden!
when is best to plant them?
As Nutcutlet says - plant them outside in the ground now - spring bulbs should be planted outside from mid September to mid October, but it'll be ok to plant them now.
Plant small bulbs 3 to 4 inches deep and the larger ones about 6 inches deep.
They're tough as old boots and will be fine in the snow and frost and will cheer you up as they peek through in the spring.
Don't be tempted to clear snow away from them as they're peeking through - it will actually keep them protected from the worst of the cold temperatures.
