Bulb Care

Can I still plant my bulbs or have I missed my window?

I live in the Boston, Massachusetts area and I have bulbs that I would like to plant. Is it entirely too late? If so, can I plant them in the spring?

It is not too late; technically this is still fall. Get them in soon and enjoy the blooms next spring. It is difficult to over-winter many spring-flowering bulbs indoors and since they don't have to establish roots before winter sets in, you are OK. I am in Michigan and have planted tulips on a nice day in December.
