I live in New York, and I didn't have a chance to plant thetulip& iris bulbs I bought last fall. The weather got to cold to fast. I left them in my garage all winter & now they appear to be sprouting in the bag. I have about 8 bags and don't want to waste them. Should I plant them now, will they come up, or would I be wasting my time? They appear to be very healthy,will they live?

There's no harm in trying to plant them. They'll probably come up as long as they have't grown too much. They may be a little unhappy about it, but will probably be fine. I wouldn't be suprised if they were a little cranky next spring, though, with some not blooming. But they should come back.

Alternatively, you can use them for forcing indoors. Just pot some up and put in a warm, sunny place.
