I bought several gladiolus and geissorhiza species from South-Africa. They were sowed in march 2013 and harvested in november 2013, according to the seller. What can I do best. 
1. Store the bulbs dry till april or august depending on summer or winter growing species.
2. pot the bulbs now and keep the soil dry till new growth starts
3. Pot the bulbs now and water them ones till new growth starts
4. Pot the bulbs now and keep the soil a bit moist till new growth starts.
With most southern hemisphere bulbs I usually follow option 3 to convert them to northern hemisphere conditions.
