Storing tulip bulbs

(Zone 9a)

How do those of you in the warmer climates store tulip bulbs?

In this area they are used as annuals but the bulbs are still usually dug after they finish blooming. I have been given several dozen large beautiful bulbs rescued from a commercial site. The foliage was brown so I believe they had enough time in the ground.

I have been drying them in the sun and will store them in a refrigerator. Is that the correct method? Should I dust them with sulphur or something to prevent rot?

Thanks, alice
