Answer: I don't think there is much hope for the bulbs. Tulips need about four months of chilling in order to grow and bloom. During this time they develop roots so the bulbs can support the foliage and flowers. Although yours are beginning to sprout, they have no roots and no hope of support for the tops. You can try planting them in hopes that they will develop roots this year and then foliage, which will restore the spent energy to the bulbs. If this happens, they will grow and bloom right on schedule next spring.
