    Loana, I'd plant them. They're hardy but can sometimes rot so in the GH would be fine and you can plant out in spring. Or just store them till spring.

    I would plant them in pots and put them somewhere they will not get too wet.

  • Good evening I would if I was you plant them deeply but when you do put some grit under them so they don't rot of and then in summer you will have a awesome show in your garden depending on how many you order plant them in 5 or 7 or 9 with about 3" between each bulb ok
