Tête-à-tête bulbs

Hi. I’ve just been down to my shed to clean some seed trays and found a box of tête-à-tête bulbs. As you can see from the photo they are sprouting. Do you think I should plant them now or wait until the autumn. Many thanks

    I'd say plant them somewhere/anywhere asap
    They'll be shrivelled and dead by autumn

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Get them planted asap. They will continue to grow and with no food going in the bulbs will be of no use. We planted some in February last year. They grew over Summer and are now about to flower.

    Meant to say - how deep would you plant them. Thanks

    Plant so the soil/ compost over the top of the bulb is twice the depth of the bulb. Planting deeper is ok. Good luck.
