You need to make sure that they get plenty of sunlight and are well fertilized when the leaves are still green. This is how they store their energy for next season. Once the leaves have faded to yellow, you can store them for next year. Some varieties of bulbs, like daffodils and crocus, need to be chilled before they can bloom again. To chill them, you need to place them in the fridge (veggie drawer is best) for at least 6 weeks.
