I live around the Raleigh area. We haven't had a frost yet, but it's starting to cool off. Would I be able to plant daffodil bulbs yet?

I say go ahead and plant. I usually get mine in over Thanksgiving weekend which is next week.

Well, rather than start a new thread...

I've had about 100 Daffodil and Tulip bulbs in the 'crisper' bin in the fridge since last fall. Should I expect them to sprout if I plant them now?

Most of them look like they've swelled a tiny bit (because their paper coverings are split), but otherwise look healthy to me.

What do you think?

I wouldn't hurt to try. Even if they are barely alive they may perk up and bloom - which they won't do in the crisper. They have definitely had their required chill hours.
