hi everyone

I live in Michigan and I just bought some freesia bulbs, and I was wondering if I can plant them in a container right now during this time of year or should I wait till september, october? and I was wondering if I can keep the container in the house for the winter and will they continue to grow throughout the winter? and if I plant the bulbs now when will they bloom flowers? this is my first time planting bulbs :)

thanks :)
I planted about 20 blubs and only 1 bloomed. The rest of them rotted. I won't be trying these again altho the one that did bloom were very pretty. It was white.
Wow! I wasn't planning to grow them but if they are so difficult that Maggie can't grow them I don't think I'll even try.
