A couple of tips and an encouragement of patience.

Plant them now in full sun in a location with deep, enriched soil and excellent drainage. The neck of the bulb should be exposed above soil level. Water them while in active growth and after flowering. Then wait — not just one year or even two; by the third spring you should start to see more stems and more flowers.
