Q.Can Daffodil Bulbs Be Planted In Late December, Around The 21 St, Or A Little Later, In Southampton, NY? (I Believe It’s Zone 7a)

. I assume that if the weather is unseasonably warm it’s not too late, and that the daffodils would still be in full bloom come spring. Would the same be true of hyacinths? Also, could squirrels and/or voles disrupt the flowering of the bulbs by tunneling or chewing at the roots? I am writing a novella that contains a small paragraph about the planting of daffodils and hyacinth bulbs and although fiction, it has to be accurate. A response is appreciated. I would also love to take it a step further by having someone read the paragraph for accuracy.

Spring blooming bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths can be planted as long as the ground is not frozen. Squirrels, voles, mice, gophers, and chipmunks may snack on flower bulbs.
