Muscari also known as Grape Hyacinths are great for indoor forcing in
containers. Mucari need 13-15 weeks of cold (temperatures consistently
below 55 degrees F) in order to grow and bloom correctly If you live in a
climate where you do not have these cold temperatures needed for the
muscari to bloom our pre-chilled bulbs are a great choice for planting
outdoors, since we have provided the cold temperatures needed for the
bulbs to bloom.
Our pre-chilled bulbs receive at least 8+ weeks of the required cold
temperatures needed before shipping and planting. Pre-chilled bulbs are
great for forcing indoors, as well as for climates where consistently
cool temperatures are not available.
*Our pre-chilled bulbs are ready for shipping starting in early December. By this time they have received the minimum amount of cold temperatures required for forcing and flower bud production.*
You can complete this "forcing" process indoors or
out. If you need more help on forcing, please refer to our help
section it has everything you need to successfully force flower bulbs!

you have received your pre-chilled bulbs in early December, they may
need 4 more weeks of chilling. After January the bulbs will have
received 12+ weeks of chilling, and do not require any additional
chilling. If you are not able to plant your bulbs immediately upon
receiving them, it is important to continue chilling them in cold
storage such as a refrigerator, cold garage or cold shed until you are
able to plant.
