I have had these bulbs in my shed a few years. :O Given they have spent many zone 4 winters out there will they grow? I only planted hard seemingly good shape bulbs. My sons seed pot got smothered by accident and he chose these as a replacement. Do I need to buy new ones and do the old bait and switch so he isn't disappointed? Thanks.

Thats what I would do. Your old bulbs may grow but it is doubtful they could be depended upon to bloom this year. Al
