Can I Plant Spring Flowering Bulbs Now...?

I seem to have a surplus of bulbs that should have been planted in the Autumn for Spring-flowering. Can they be planted now for flowering in the summer?

Can I Plant Spring Flowering Bulbs Now...?
Plant them by all means,they're unlikely to produce many flowers this year,but will have a good start for next season.
Reply:depends on the temperature in your area.if the ground is not frozen. or soggy plant them
Reply:If they are specifically spring flowering bulbs ( Crocus, Daffodil, Tulip, Hyacinth, etc ) you can set them in the ground but they will not bloom this season. You should have a nice show next spring, however.
Reply:If it's something like dahlias or other specifically summer flowering bulbs, by all mean plant them. It rather depends on what sort of bulbs you have, or what sort of climate you live in. For instance, I'm planning on planting bluebell bulbs soon, because it's still cold here and they specifically need the cold to germinate.
Reply:I planted a load of them on Saturday and am just hoping for the best! I put them in deep to protect them from the frost.
