Hi, everyone. I'm new, so forgive me if I'm not posting this in the right place.

I live in New England, zone 5b. I moved into a new house last fall and didn't finish planting all my spring flowering bulbs before things froze up (early). The left-over bulbs have been in an uninsulated garage all winter; temps in there for most of the season were in the 30s to 40s.

The bulbs looks healthy and have small shoots emerging. What will happen if I plant them now? Is there a chance they may produce flowers this year? Should I plant them now but not expect anything until spring a year from now?

Or should I just discard them? :-(

Thank you.
