Storing bulbs

I have a number of daffodil and hyacinth bulbs from hanging baskets and others from the garden that I have had to move. Can you advise the best way to store them until I am ready to replant them? Can they be put back in planters for next year or must they go in the garden?
Thank you.

I would recommend following the advice in the following article for storing those bulbs until you are ready to replant- just be sure to provide them a cool, dry location:

As for your container bulbs, you may keep them in the pots so long as they are stored under the right conditions. For more information on storing container bulbs, please visit the following link:
