Perki........prepared bulbs you would normally pot up and put in the dark to force them (it would explain on the packaging ) ........if you didn't do that when you bought the bulbs, odds on you have bulbs which will flower at their normal time...i.e. Spring whether planted in the garden or in pots. OTOH, if, like some of us, you either ignore the instructions or just forget them, you could have prepared ones.
Still, just think of the anticipation......they could keep you guessing for a while and they are bound to flower at some point between Xmas and April. They should smell just as good whichever way they decide to go
