I know this is a daft question, but what would happen to spring bulbs if I put them in now?



Nothing much for this year, they may, or may not put up leaves - very unlikely to flower though. If you have just discovered a bag of bulbs in your potting shed and they are not soft get them planted and if foliage appears water with half strength tomato food to feed the bulb. If you are seeing them as a cheap offer in a GC my advice is don't even think of buying!

Thank you for that. No they weren't a GC offer but just some that I didn't get round to putting in last autumn. I'll give them a go, they always have 2 chances don't they
