Answer: What a predicament! It would be better to plant them in pots, water once lightly and set those in a very cool but not freezing location (an unheated garage might do) to chill and root. As they begin to sprout, you will need to bring them into a cool and bright location to grow on. By keeping them very cool, they can be easily acclimated and then planted in the garden in the early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. There, the foliage can be allowed to grow and ripen naturally and the bulbs should be fine. Good luck!
