I live in Richmond, BC. It's the 3rd of January. Is it too late to plant tulips, daff's and other spring bulbs? Thanks, in advance, for your assistance. Cheers.

if the bulb is viable; plump,and firm, then plant it. It will only degrade, next spring will not be better. A good number of bulbs will be fine, but late, others will be stunted. Tulips for instance can bloom at ground level. It will also depend on the spring, a cold extended spring may provide just the right cold period.Go for it if you already have bulbs, or find them dirt cheap, otherwise I would wait till next season, your definately pushing it.
