I am assuming the you are refering to dutch iris which are a true bulb. My
experience with them is limited. I would store them in a dry material, like
sand, in an air conditioned space if possible. Although a basement or
cabinet in a garage might also work. The bulbs should be refrigerated before
planting. I do not know how long the refrigeration should be but would guess
a month would work. Plant in late fall. If you buy the bulbs instead of the
container, you will get a lot more bulbs for your money and you can let the
bulbs go dormant in place.
