Q.How to care of Tulip bulbs from Amsterdam before I plant them in September?

Zone 93003 | janeking352@sbcglobal.net added on July 25, 2018 | Answered

Specifically, the bulbs my daughter brought back to me two days ago from Amsterdam are packaged in an airtight plastic with lots of air in the bag that cannot seep out. I put them in the refrigerator> I am concerned about leaving them in that kind of packaging.. Should I puncture the bag so the bulbs can breath? What should I do? thank you I do not want to ruin these bulbs after she took the effort to give them to me as a gift.
