Container Tulips That Have Bloomed

I have two containers of tulip bulbs that were purchased for me for my birthday. They bloomed beautifully and now the green is dried up brown. What should I do with the bulbs now? Cut back the brown and take them out of the soiled containers and store them in my refrigerator to be planted in the fall? I live in Richmond, Va.

Yes, you can take them out and store them, though I would store them in the garage so that they get heat. They need heat over the summer to produce a bloom.

You can also just go ahead and plant them now. This article will help:
