You cannot store those bulbs for planting next fall. The only way to salvage them at this point is to pot them up for forced blooming. Here is information on how to do that. You cannot leave them outdoors (or the pots outdoors) as they will freeze and be killed. They do not freeze that hard in the ground. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/growing-bulbs-indoors
