Winter growing bulb seed might germinate now but with warmer temperatures approaching they will not have time enough to build up a bulb big enough to survive the first dry summer. Watering a dormant seedling pot may kill the dormant bulb as well. So it is better to store the seed of winter growers until let's say October.
