Message: It would be best to plant them right away if possible, as it's not yet too late in most areas. If this is not possible, you can try to store them in a cool (not below freezing), dry area and plant them next spring. It may be helpful to coat bulbs in a bulb dust that will help guard against rot, as well as store them in either peatmoss or vermiculite to help remove moisture from the bulb.
