Plant them. they'll die if you don't. I'd put them in a pot of gritty compost in a cold GH.

Your fears of rot will be proved right in a cold wet winter outside.

I planted 8 in September, in a pot, I have 3 flowers, my first ever from several tries.

worms are very happy between weed fabric and stones. I have my babies standing on that and am forever tipping out pots and finding a large worm in residence.

Worms can get into a pot when It's standing flat on concrete as well.

It's a tricky one. All plants shed flowers, leaves, seeds and it shows on hard surfaces more than on soil/grass.

Avoid berries, they stain.
