I received a big order of bulbs in the fall--daffodils, crocuses, muscari, and tulips. I planted about half of them right away (late October/early November) and the rest did not get around to until after Christmas. They were stored in an unheated porch, but didn't freeze. Some sprouted a little but did not seem rotten or dried out when I planted them. Now all the ones I planted early are starting to sprout--the daffodils are 4 or 5 inches tall and some of the crocuses are in bloom. None of the late-planted bulbs even have shoots. Do you think there is hope that they'll just be late bloomers, or are they a lost cause?
