-25ÂșC where I lived before wasn't a problem
one cm deep planted on a small hill
a few cm higher as the rest of the garden
and fine chicken-wire over the bulbs against squirrels

biggest problem is that in the trade the bulbs are wild collected
they hardly re-root in the garden
and die after a few years
or they rot because the place is to wet

better to grow them from seed in garden-soil
and replant them the second year in the garden
