Yes Steve do as soon as you possibly can without endangering yourself.

If you can get them replanted this weekend, Steve, they should be fine. I suspect that your main problem will be matching bulbs with labels!

Oh Steve - I'm sorry to hear that - and wish you luck in salvaging your bulbs. Here it wasn't cold temperature-wise, so I hope that was the case with you, too.

What an awful sight for you, Steve. I'm so glad you had your new glass greenhouse ready; good luck with salvaging those precious bulbs.

It makes you sick when you see it, doesn't it? Good luck, especially with matching the labels. Hope not too many breakages. Phil

Steve, I feel for you. I had exactly the same problem as you with a similar shelter about four years ago. Mr B is quite right too...worst thing was I didn't have a clue what plant/bulb belonged with which label! HOpe it all turns out ok for you!
