Could anyone help me with some advice please. I got caried away recently when purchasing some bulbs from my local garden centre and wondered what the best way, if any, to store them for next year.
You can't store bulbs-you will just need to plant them -make up some containers if you don't have room in the garden
They will not keep till next year.
Exactly as Geoff says - bulbs are not seeds, they cannot be stored for next year. If you don't plant them out this year they will die.
If you honestly do not want to plant them give them to a local charity shop.
