Hello everyone,
this is my first msg on this magical pbs list, thanks a lot to all the pbs
Here in France, the frost is coming day after day deeper and deeper, but
some of my summer growing bulbs are still green. They don't grow anymore
but their foliage is still alive. I don't water them for 3 weeks now, and
the outside temperature is below 1-5° C.

The problem is I can't maintain Fall temperatures during winter, because my
appartment is warmed at about 18-20°C, and I've only frost protections
outside for winter growing bulbs.
How can I make those summer growers enter in dormancy in order to stock
them (for example in a box in the fridge, like my Pleione) ?
Best regards
