Q: Tulip and daffodil bulbs in bag from last fall —oops. What do?

11 months ago

I kept meaning to plant these bulbs last fall, but didn’t get to.

I am in zone 5a New England, USA and the ground is frozen and snow-covered.

The bulbs are bare and in net bags. I have an unheated 50 or 55 deg cellar and also a garage that varies in temperature, sometimes freezing, other times between 38 deg F and 48 deg F this time of year.

I’m not sure that I have ever potted up spring bulbs to force. I don’t have a lot of space for them, definitely n ot in a fridge if potted up.

Can someone offer me a suggestion or two as to how I might attempt to rescue these bulbs? I think they are solid and intact.
