Hi. I just asked this question but had to change my profile as my e mail address has changed. i bought almost $50 worth of bulbs from home depot in mehlville, Mo. Can i plant them now which is mid-may or should i store them till fall? If i do store them is there a way or place i should store them? thank you so much.

If you just bought the bulbs, I'd get them into the ground as soon as possible. Spring flowering bulbs won't live through the summer without an opportunity to develop foliage to replenish the bulb and summer blooming bulbs need to get into the ground right away so they have a chance to grow and bloom later this summer. I'd plant them all as soon as possible.
