Neglected tulip bulbs. Do I plant or not?
I've found myself in a predicament & hope you can advise me.
I dug out about 50+ tulip bulbs & 20 allium last fall in order to redesign an entry bed where I replanted new tulip bulbs to ensure flowers this spring.
I ran out of time & left the dug up bulbs in mesh trays in an unheated shed(zone 5). To my surprise I see that many of those bulbs are showing green leaves sprouting from the bulb tips. They are not in soil/dirt of any kinds & were destined for the garbage bin ...
Would you take a chance & pot them up? or would it be a waste of time to think they'd develop flowers. None are Darwin type to my knowledge.
Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
