Q.Planting Grape Hyacinths and Daffodils in Spring

Anonymous added on April 17, 2011 | Answered

I was given some lovely (potted) flowering plants to use as centerpieces for Easter dinner a couple of weeks ago (a grape hyacinth, white tulips, and some daffodils). They were beautiful and I loved having living plants on the tables instead of cut stems. My question is, now that the blooms have faded off the plants, can I plant them outside? All the advice I’ve read on planting them says to do it in the fall. I’m in Massachusetts (Zone 5), and it’s mid-April. Further complicating matters is that my property is at the edge of woods, and most of the sun we get is afternoon. I’m not sure if all of these factors add up to an overly inhospitable situation. Would love some advice!
