So I’m not great with the garden. Generally have good intentions, I bought bulbs in autum, but then didn’t plant them!
Snowdrops and daffodils, could I pot them inside or should I just plant them outside now and fuckit they’ll either grow or not grin
Would rather not just bin them and assume they won’t last until late this year.

I would keep them until next year - as long as you keep them dry they'll be fine.

Ah, now, I would plant them as by next year they may be rather shrivelled.

I've just been planting an assortment of bulbs that were sent as freebies with some plants - they should have been planted weeks ago but (as the mail order company optimistically said) they'll probably catch up. I've had good results in the past with bulbs that I've mislaid and only planted weeks later when they've turned up,

I would plant them as they won’t last well left unplanted for a year. I often plant bulbs late and they do ok. Last year I planted some freebie tulips from j Parker’s in Feb and had a nice display.

They will last unplanned until next Autumn, don't worry.
