Umar there was a specific reason for asking the question.
The bulbs supplied by reputable firms are always treated (chilled) bulbs which start sprouting as soon as they are exposed to warmer environment (sold for indoor blooming). If the bulbs have not been pre-chilled or even chilled bulbs if they remain exposed to cold environment, remain dormant until the temperatures increase and the advantage of chilling is lost.
Winter blooms last much longer than the spring blooms therefor start them in doors and as the scape appear shift them along a sunny wall.
