"commercial" freesias

Last year I potted up and flowered some freesia cultivars - blue, yellow,
and white. They flowered in late winter in my cool (50° Fahrenheit)
greenhouse. Smelled delicious and were a good antidote to the winter blahs.

Recently I was just getting ready to discard them, vaguely remembering that
they were only supposed to be good for one go-around. But the bulbs, having
sat all summer hot and dry in their pots in my greenhouse, look really plump
and sound. So maybe that is information put out by vendors who would prefer
I purchase new bulbs rather than recycle old ones.

My question: can I re-use these, and if yes, do I just start watering them
or is it better to repot with fresh potting mix.

Thanks in advance.
