For step 5, it states that "Stand the basket in a sunny spot to dry out for at least eight weeks". May I know if it is alright if it rains?

How dry does it need to be? And how do you store the bulbs? Do you have to cut the foliage.

After the 8 weeks or when their leaves have died back, I clean off my bulbs, remove any leaves,  bin any that have rotted and store them in a wire basket in the shed.

They need to be stored somewhere dry or they will rot. If you left them in the rain in a puddle that is where the problem starts, I try to get mine under the eaves so that they get the sun but do not get too wet.
