Difficult to tell as yet, maybe someone else will have an idea. Plants them at least twice as deep as their height which is the general rule for bulb planting. If you want to be sure about placing them int he right spot, plant them in a pot, the beauty of bulbs is that they don't really mind a bit of disturbance.

The bulb with the brown skin on it looks an awful lot like a tulip bulb.

The white one looks a lot like my Glories of the Snow; they do not look like my Stars of Bethlehem, which do increase rapidly, but I like them.
