So long as the ground is not frozen you can plant them.

Otherwise, cool, dark and dry, though don't let them dry out (moist sand is a good way to store them)

We have had a very, very wet fall and I was unable to plant some of my bulbs in the garden because the soil was just too wet. I tend to order way too many bulbs and I always pot up the ones I can't find room for or don't have time to plant. That way I am sure they will survive the winter and I get blooms in the spring too.
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!
