Hi all, as I received some new spring bulbs, late this fall, I'm wondering if I can still plant them in the next few days. Highs are to be about 40 degrees. Is it too late?

Nope...get them in the ground.

If the ground isn't frooze you can still plant them. I have even put in containers. Not the crock type and planted them. And put mulch around sides. Or store in unheated garage. water every once and while.Either bring inside house for winter color or outside when other bulbs bloom.
