Bulbs

I dug up see bulb plants because they had to be moved or tossed out. Elephant ears, cannas, and Peruvian daffodils. Can I just transplant them or put them in pots?

In the case of the Daffodils I would dry and store the bulbs until fall, then plant out.
Where the Elephant Ears and Cannas still actively growing?
I would pot these up and either continue care or allow the foliage to dry down naturally to feed the bulbs.
Then store as per the articles below.
