Easter Lily and Tulips

Anonymous added on May 2, 2011 | Answered

I received an Easter lily and a tulip plant, both planted in 8-inch pots on Easter day from our church. The blooms have died off now and the stems and leaves are starting to yellow. When can I plant them in the ground? Should I wait until fall or next spring, and if so, how should I store them? Also, are they sun or shade lovers?

If you live in a warm climate, you will need to pre-chill the tulips to get them to bloom for next year once the leaves go yellow on their own. This article has information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/how-to-plant-bulbs-in-the-south.htm

Otherwise you can simply go ahead and plant them both out in the garden. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/how-to-plant-a-flower-bulb-in-your-garden-after-winter-forcing.htm
