I just received some amaryllis bulbs. The weather is turning cold and I need to know if I should plant the bulbs or store them until spring. I live in zone 8. These bulbs were dug from an outdoor bed. If they need stored what is the best way?

It really depends on the amaryllis variety you have. If you received them from someone local to you who grew them outside year round, then you can go ahead and plant them now. Otherwise, it would be safest to wait until spring to plant them out. If you find the specific variety, you can look up what zones are appropriate for it and treat accordingly.
