I planted some muscari and they flowered successfully with two flowers per bulb. Now the flowers have wilted. How should I keep them in order to make them grow next year? The leaves are still there and I've cut the flowers so that they don't drain energy anymore.

I am in Hong Kong which is a subtropical area. Please give advice for the sub-tropics as I know muscari originated from colder places which suit them better.

When winter comes, dig the bulbs up, trim off the leaves, and wrap in newspaper. Then put them in the refrigerator to break the dormancy. Leave them in for 8 weeks, then plant back in the garden.
