Just by way of update: planted over 200 bulbs! Only some tulips left now. Took hours but fingers crossed they'll flower albeit later.
I read somewhere about chilling tulip bulbs in the fridge to mimic winter - would that be of any benefit, before planting them out (as it's a bit later)?

I am also a martyr to a double whammy of cats and foxes. Every gardening session has to begin with a poop pickup and then replanting all the pots and plants they dig up. It's not just bulbs they dig up... big 2L plants, whether it's fresh earth or bark or grit.
It's so demoralising. I've got the super-soaker, lion poo, marble-eyed cat scarer, high pitch audio thing, and a water spray to set up... hopefully one, or a combination of these will do the trick...

Thank you! That's this weekend's job then...
In terms of prioritisation, am I right in thinking the tulips will suffer the least for storage? And I should prioritise getting the other ones in the ground, eg daffodils? 🌷🌻

Due to a combination of enthusiastic online shopping and a having to be away for work, I find myself with a glut of spring flowering bulbs inc daffodils, tulips, alliums, crocus etc.
Can I plant any of these now in Jan/Feb, or should I be storing them for planting next autumn?
Any tips or advice very gratefully appreciated... none of my friends garden! :(
