Crocus Ard Schenk bulbs already sprouting - can I still plant them?


I got some Crocus Ard Schenk bulbs, but I forgot them for some time in the garage. They are now already sprouting.. 

What should I do? can I still plant them outside? or should I start growing them indoor?

Thanks a lot,

    They'll be fine outside - plant them now about 4" deep, in a sunny spot.  They'll look gorgeous in early spring image

    Yes, go for it, but watch out for squirrels if you have them in your area - ours just love crocus bulbs - well nearly any bulbs really, but especially crocus.  Lots of pyracantha and holly trimmings deters them somewhat.
