I didnt plant all the tulip and jonquil bulbs I bought in the fall. What should I do with them now?

The probably won't survive, even if you plant them now. Bulbs have enough energy stored to produce roots and foliage but it takes 12-14 weeks for roots to form before the leaves emerge. By the time they are ready to sprout, the weather will turn from spring to fall. I'd toss the bulbs and purchase new ones to plant this fall. Wish I could be more positive!
