Digging Up Tulip Bulbs
The tulips have bloomed, the leaves have turned brown, and I've dug up the bulbs. Must I replant them now? Can I store them in a paper bag and plant them in the fall? Is there a better way to store them? What do I do with the small bulbs?

You can store them for the summer and replant them in the fall. Place in a warm, dry place for the summer. They need a little warmth over summer to form blossoms. Storing them in a paper bag or in newspaper will help to wick away harmful moisture.
