Hyacinth bulbs

I had some hyacinths growing in bulb forcing vases and forgot all about them until alerted by the smell.

If I just leave them to dry back will they be any good for next year if I refrigerate them?

I wouldn't risk it especially the ones that are rotting. If the bulb is firm then maybe, if soft then probably either rotten or hasn't built up enough reserves to last until next year. May be try planting them out for the summer and see if they recover.
