Help on Lily bulbs!

My lilies weren't looking so well so I dug a couple up. Some of the bulbs were really soft, so I assume that they're getting to much water. I went ahead and took the bulbs up, but what do I do with them until I can get them in the ground? There is one big one and some babies. Do I have to store them a certain way? It won't hurt to go ahead and put them back in the ground will it? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If they are soft, they may not be any good. Go ahead and replant them. They won't grow this year, but hopefully they'll be back next year. Lilies require soil with good drainage. You might want to add some sand to the planting hole.

Thanks, alankhart, I'll try adding sand, for some reason I never even thought of that.
