Tulips Have Sprouted, When Do I Plant?

I live in NW Ohio. I have some tulip bulbs that I just did not have time to plant last fall. I have them in my basement in a bag. They have "sprouts" coming out of them. Is it too late to plant them this Fall? What would happen if I planted them now? Dumb question, I know, but I know little about gardening. In fact, my husband used to tell me that I could kill plastic flowers. Ha, ha.

I'd plant them now as the 'sprouts' show that they are still alive. If they grow it will give the leaves a chance to feed the bulbs and then the cycle should get back to normal. Persevere with your gardening - it will give you so much pleasure!

Plant them now, this happened to my mom several years back and she had the preetiest red tulips ever. P.S. tell your husband like I tell mine. Zip your lips. LOL
