Planting shooting bulbs in feb

Hi, I'm a novice gardener. I had some bulbs planted last spring that flowered nicely but had to remove them after glowing due to lack of space. I hung them in my shed with the leaves still attached. My plan was to plant them out again in the autumn but due to illness couldn't get out to do it. They are still hung in the shed. The old leaves have died and many have new shoots of 2-3cm. My question is, can I plant them out in the ground or into containers or is it too late? They are tulips and daffodils. Many thanks

They won't survive and flower otherwise, as already said.
The daffs can be planted into the garden later on if required, and they should thrive. The tulips will tend to diminish over time anyway, as they need quite specific conditions, unless they're the species or Apeldoorn ones, which are a bit different. Enjoy any flowers you get from them anyway
