HELP! Planted my first bulbs (right at correct time) and the crazy warm weather here in Pittsburgh (zone6) has caused my crocuses and hyacinths to emerge already. Are they doomed? Thanks!!

No, they should be alright. Overwintering bulbs such as these are very tolerant to cold (even freezing) weather.

RE: early emergence

Excellent, thanks. I figured established bulbs would be fine but wasn't sure about new guys.

RE: early emergence

You can always toss some old leaves or other loose mulch over them, even some old compost if you have it. That's what I would do.
