Bulbs

I bought three bags of bulbs a couple or three months ago. One of tulip, one of mixed daffs and one of snowdrops. I came across them the other day (in the shed) and the tulip and daffodil bulbs had started sprouting, but not the snowdrops, which didn't feel that plump. Will they still grow? Were they bad to start with as they didn't start sprouting like the others did.

You will need to quickly plant the daff and tulip bulbs, they may come good for you. Snowdrops should never really be grown from bulbs, they rarely are successful and are usually a waste of money, wait until they are offered for sale 'in the green' when they will be fresh and success is guaranteed, so you wizened up little snowdrops are probably deceased, they are ex snowdrops
