I've just dug up my tubers, in early April - a bit prematurely it appears, as I believe spring is the best time to plant them, August to October. How should I now store them so they won't rot or dry out till then? Or should I just replant them now??

I would just put a few back in the ground. They'll regrow in spring. Very hard to kill.

I keep mine in a plastic bag at the back of the fridge... checking now and again to make sure they don't get wet. They last for months for eating (but I haven't tried replanting those).
