Left over daffodil and tulip bulbs

Hello all

About 6 weeks ago my dad gave me some brown bags with some leftover dafs and tulips that he hadn't planted. At the moment I've got them in the corner of the shed, will they be ok the until autumn? Or should I look to get them into soil? 

At the front of our house we have a patch of lawn that I've left to grow long and wild but unfortunately there wasn't much colour. I was thinking of just spreading the bulbs through this patch. I didn't cut the grass back at all this year, if I were to plant the bulbs here now or later in the year, would I need to cut the grass shorter in order for them to come through?

Here's where I'm thinking of putting them

    If they’re still firm plant  them now ... they should grow, probably wont flower but it’ll give you the chance to feed them up to form next springs flowers, then they’ll die down for winter. 

    If they’re not firm throw them away.

    @Dovefromabove thank you, I'll check them out in the morning.

    And I'm ok to just make holes and pop them in amongst the tall grass?

    The deeper the better ... at least 3 x depth of each bulb. Then give them a really good soak.
