If your friend's bulbs are a hybrid, the flowers from the seeds won't look exactly like the original. To grow the seeds, they need rich, well-drained soil in full sun. The seeds need at least 7 weeks of cold stratification, either in the refrigerator or outside.

It can take several years for a seed to bloom. It would be better just to plant bulbs.
