Oh dear - what a sad little plant
He wants to be outdoors right enough. Bung him outside anton, even in a pot in a sheltered corner and when he's recovered, get him into the border where you want him. He'll be fine. Or she....
Re your query about buying bulbs and leaving them in the ground - it depends on the bulbs! Most will stay in the ground and come up every year. Alliums can be left in situ - well drained sunny spot for most of them. In late summer /early autumn the GCs, nurseries and diy outlets will get stock in of the popular bulbs - daffs, crocus etc. That's the best time to buy and plant them, and they stay in the ground too. Tulips are usually left till a bit later in the year to plant and many people treat them as annuals as they can be a bit trickier to keep going in the ground.
If there's a specific bulb you're interested in just let us know - you'll get plenty of help and advice
