Almost everywhere:
Inspect frost-tender bulbs, corms and tubers you have stored inside. 
Throw out soft ones, except for dahlias which can be rescued by 
cutting out the rotten bit and dusting with sulphur.  Store 
separately from the others.

Buy amaryllis (Hippeastrum) and store in a cool dark place.  Then pot 
at 2 week intervals for bloom until mid-February.

Start bringing out pots of hyacinths, narcissus and other spring 
bulbs that are to be forced into the light.  (They need to be in a 
cool dark place for 10 or 11 weeks.)
