Can these grow in containers or must be planted?

Got in potted! Hoping it does well. Technically centered, but it got squishes a bit from high winds knocking it over. 🤦🏽‍♀️ That can't happen any longer.

Sorry I can't answer your question but I saw a post where a commercial blueberry farmer in California planted hundreds of blueberries in 10 gallon pots. Can't think if they were grow bags or buckets. But at least the size helps. He's done it for years.

Mini daffodils.

ok, then they might be alright because the minis bloom early and finish earlier than the rest so it would not be too unusual for them to die back at this time or earlier in the south. however, about a month after they've completely died back you can check out how they're doing by dumping out the container and inspecting the bulbs. if you remember what you planted then you should see bulbs about like what you planted plus some extras. if instead you don't see much increase in the bulbs or they are smaller then they are telling you that isn't a good spot for them and conditions weren't right.

So, lupine turn into ugly, half dead plants after seeding? Ugh. :(
Got all of the seeds! More than a packet gets you. Averaged about 2, with zero to 5. But more could of grown. We'll see if next year is better.

Transplanted the other wildflowers into the bin where none of the seeds grew. Wtf. They need indoor heat to sprout I guess. Insane.
