Camassia in pots?

Hi, i have potted up camassia bulbs into good size plastic pots with gravel layer on top. They are currently in my net tunnel, so exposed to weather but with a bit of protection, will they be ok in there, not much sun reaches tunnel at this time of year...or should i move outside by the fence where they will get the morning sun?

    I grow mine in the ground. In your case I'd leave them in the tunnel for the winter to protect the roots from getting too frozen as they're in pots. Normally they're perfectly tough. They don't need sunshine until they start growing flower spikes in the spring.
