Hi! Many of my spring bulbs left planted in the garden started to grow leaves during the summer! Are they going to be any good or should I throw them out?

It has been an odd year. That has happened quite a bit. The leaves will only take nutrients down to the bulbs, so won't harm them, but it will be intersting to see if the flower display is as good as normal next spring. Phil J

this is common for many bulbs, especially muscari.

Yes, mine appear early every year. I noticed them today again.
