|You can remove the dead foliage and unpot the bulbs then either plant them directly in the garden or store them in a cool, dry location and plant them outdoors this fall. I think it's easier to simply plant them outdoors now and mark where you plant them so you don't accidently dig them up while they are resting. Next spring they'll sprout and with any luck they'll flower nicely for you. Hope so!
