Q.Muscari bulbs

Zone Fairfield, CT Zone 7a | Anonymous added on November 30, 2018 | Answered

I live in Zone 7a (Fairfield, CT 06825) I planted daffodils, crocus, and muscari Nov 1st, before the first frost. Here in CT we have had an extremely warm October and early November. The muscari has sent up leaves about 2 inches. We have two frosts and the leaves appear to be slightly wilted.
Other muscari, planted 3 years ago, send up leaves every autumn. Those leaves are 4 to 5 inches long and are very green. Is this what is happening with the newly planted bulbs? What should I do? Dig them up and pot them for winter blooming indoors? Mulch them in the garden now? Mulch after the next frost? Thank you in advance, Georgia Keogh

The best thing you can do here is let them die from the next frost, and mulch then. You will be at the mercy of nature for now. This happens sometimes, and there is little that you can do for them.
