    Thanks for reply @Fairygirl i didn't know the procedure ie, do i have to wait for foliage to die down?, trim it off?,dry out bulbs etc? any ideas?

    You could simply plant out the contents of each pot now in its own hole about twice as deep as they are in the pot. Add in some fresh compost to help feed them.
    If you have planted very densely in the pot then keep them watered and fed until the foliage has died away then empty the pot, separate the bulbs carefully and plant them where you want them.
