It is too late to plant some bulbs, but not too late for most. It is too late to plant fall-blooming crocuses and colchicum. If not already planted, they might have bloomed while still in storage, used up their food reserves stored in the bulbs, and therefore be unfit to plant. However, it is not too late to plant daffodils, tulips and other spring-blooming bulbs, if they are still available. The only other consideration that might prevent you from planting now is if your ground is frozen.
