yes pot up asap, water and put in gh for winter.  Plant out when danger of frost has passed.  Ideally plant out when you have some good growth showing

Online plant suppliers?

Sam, yes they are excellent.

have ordered from them quite a few times and service....plant condition on arrival, prompt delivery and communications first class

only once did a plant not do well for me from them.  They re supplied without quibble and with friendliness.

as you say, Jacksons are cheaper than gc and many other online suppliers but plants supplied are of good size

order with confidence Sam

mags, look if you feel happier with them in the ground then get them in. plant deep and mark with a cane.  If you know where you want them and space is available they will be fine.  If you have heavy or wet soil put a handful of grit under the bulbs.

currently I am planting in pots and in the ground.....I do same with tulips, daffs and alliums with potted ones for later planting
