Bulb Snakeshead planting

I have some Snakeshead bulbs that rather than plant out in the garden and risk disturbing bulbs already insitu and overplanting, I plan to pot up in small pots, say 3 to a pot , over winter them and then plant them out where I can see suitable spaces. Question is once potted do I just leave them out in a sheltered place in the garden but open to all weather or put them in the unheated greenhouse with some sort of watering regime??? Thoughts please. Thanks

    Outside for them  :)
    I'm assuming you mean snakeshead fritillaries?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Yes, got quite a few as I intend to plant some in a community garden I volunteer in, but will have to wait till late winter, early spring to see what's already there/survived from previous planting ;) Thanks

    I have some in pots,they just get left to their own devices in the garden. They don't mind wet weather,I don't water them either.
