Plant early spring so that it can get established before the hot weather. Simply expand the soil following the directions. Fill the nursey pot with 2/3 of the medium, position the bulb, roots down, pointy end up and cover with the remaining soil. Water well, not letting the pot dry out. Give it the exposure needed, protect against freezing temperatures and sit back to enjoy watching it grow.
Bulbs are essentially storage mechanisms and already contain everything needed to produce flowers. Water liberally during the growing season as they should not be dry at any time. There is no need to fertilize them. After flowering, remove the root ball from the pot and plant in your garden prior to frost if USDA zone appropriate for flowers next season.
