If they were hardneck they really needed a cold period to grow their root so they may not produce any cloves. Plant them as soon as you can.

Follow up question]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/733/garlic-planting-in-the-spring?commentid=2087 Thanks for the quick reply. I have a few hard neck and a few soft neck varieties remaining.  All seem to be in good condition. Still lots of ice and snow here. It will probably be a few weeks before I could even think of getting them out in the garden.  Do you think planting in containers could be an option? I have several large containers I could put outside right away.

<![CDATA[Re: Garlic planting in the spring?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/733/garlic-planting-in-the-spring?commentid=2089 Hardneck garlic really needs the cold winter to produce the bulbs, and they do not form bulbs very well in  containers. You will get the tops but you may not get any bulbs.
