Were you meaning to keep the bulbs until next Spring/early Summer before you bringing them into the light? If the temperature is right they will start growing as soon as they are in the soil. They will be very unhappy plants if you leave them in the dark too long. All yellow and weak.
They are very hardy so you can plant them in pots in succession and bring them into flower in succession. Flowering time depends on the variety. The information is in the catalogues or on-line.They will flower quite happily in the snow. But they need planting now.
