Should I Store Bulbs in Fridge or Apartment?

There was a sale on some interesting native bulbs, so purchased them with the idea I would plant them when I visit my parents for Father's Day.

My Questions are:
1.) Should I store them in the fridge or my (occasionally hot) apartment?
2.) Should I plant them Father's Day or wait until Fall?

The bulbs are Virginia Bluebells, Trout Lilly, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, white trillium, and purple trillium.

RE: Should I Store Bulbs in Fridge or Apartment?

Well, it's been days and no one has responded. I assume the reason is that the bulbs you list are not commonly grown. Still, the answer is to store them in a cool dark room, but not the refrigerator. You could put them under a bed in an air conditioned room if you don't have a basement.

All things considered, you may be disappointed because all of those plants are usually sold and planted in the fall. It is possible that your bulbs were leftovers from last fall's selling season. If so, they may not still be viable.
