Forced tulip bulbs generally can be difficult to get to bloom again.

Yes, you can plant your tulips out this spring, if they still have leaves, wait until they have died down. Then go ahead and

plant them out in the garden.

If the tulips are new bulbs, go ahead and plant them out into the garden later this spring. I am in MN, and have actually

done this when I found a bag of bulbs that had been missed in the fall. Though tulips do need to be planted in the fall and

have a cold period, this is a case of nothing ventured, nothing gained. Don't expect every bulb to flower.

Here is a link that will help you through the process.
