I purchased fall planted bulbs in spring, what should I do with them?

I purchased fall planted falls a few days ago, now I'm left with what to do with them. Do I store them or plant them anyways? If store, what is the proper way? Please help!

Answer: Store bulbs only after their foliage has completely died down. If you cut off the leaves before this stage, the bulb will not have the reserves to grow and flower the following year.

Place the bulbs to dry in a cool, airy spot, brush off excess soil and then store them in nets, old stockings or in single layers in cardboard boxes.

Ideally, bulbs should be stored so that they do not touch each other – separate them with shredded paper or similar.
