What to do with Allium bulbs?

I have a large selection of Allium bulbs left over from a delivery I got in the autumn. These were extras to the ones I had ordered (due to some damaged bulbs) and at the time I had no where to plant them. They have overwintered in the shed but I was wondering what the best thing to do with them was if I want to use them at a later date? Obviously this is something I really should have asked in autumn but if there are any sage words I'd be grateful!

    Get them planted asap either in the ground or in pots.  If you don't, they'll rot or dry up and die.

    If you don't plant them, they will die.

    If you do plant them, they maybe ok., so I would plant them.
