Bringing last year’s unplanted plug plants back from the dead

For various reasons, I was not able to plant the many seedlings and plug plants that I had cultivated last spring and summer.

They have sat outside since autumn and have been subject to lots of rain.

Do I assume that they are all dead?
Or is it worth bringing them indoors now in the hope of somehow resuscitating them?
Or should I just give up, and reuse the plant tray for new seeds?

    Can you tip the plugs out to see if there is any living roots ? I nearly threw away my 1st ever cuttings as there was no top growth but there was lots of lovely roots. If there's roots then you can get them in a nice warm sunny spot and keep them a bit drier and you should get some growth going 
  • I would also pot them on into slightly larger pots as there will be no nutrients left in the pots they are in, especially since we have had so much rain.I would also leave them outside in a sheltered corner.

    I think @philippa smith2 has the correct response.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
