Q.Bulbs Gone Bad?
I had some bulbs to be planted last fall that I didn’t get to and left them outside on the back porch all winter. We live in zone 5 and it gets pretty cold here. Do I just pitch them or is there hope? Thank you! Patsy Vicek

Unfortunately, it is hard to say without knowing what kind of bulbs that they are. Since they were intended for a fall planting, I will assume that they require cold to break dormancy. If this is the case, then there is a chance that they will germinate. There will be no harm in trying.
