That's a good pound's worth David, in spite of its being a bit battered. Right now do nothing except perhaps a liquid feed of a high potash fertilizer and keep it reasonably moist (not wet) until there is real yellowing of the foliage. This could be a while as it looks as if you may have seed forming. THEN dry it off and keep it dry until your early autumn and then repot it or put it in the garden with the top of the bulbs about 5 or 6cms below the surface. Sunny place, well drained and a little lime if available. You could carefully split off some side bulbs to make a bigger clump.
