Spring bulb planter

Was given a gift of a planter of spring bulbs, tulips, daffodills, hyacinth. Its all done now so I cut it all back. Can I save the bulbs? Where should I keep them? Can I replant them next fall?

Do you have outdoor space to put them in the ground?

I am afraid that cutting it all back was probably a mistake. Unless of course the foliage had all died. Those leaves nourish the bulbs to make next years flowers. You need to wait for them to die down naturally before either lifting the bulbs and drying, or easier still leaving them in the planter where they will reappear next year.
