Spring bulbs pulled up too early - can they be saved

14 years ago

I bought a house a few years ago and am starting to fix up the landscaping. The plot is on a slope and the flowerbox wood edgings kept shifting foward over the sidewalk. Yesterday we installed new edging anchored into the ground but I had to dig up a large portion of my crocuses, grape hyacinths, and glory of the snow in the process. Unfortunately the project took longer than expected and I wasn't able to get the bulbs back in the ground. Also the new edging is higher so I would need to move the bulbs anyway due to planting depth.

Can I replant now or cutoff the remaining greenery and store to plant in the fall?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
