Q.How Do I Save Tulip Bulbs To Plant For Fall?

Zone Valley, Ne. | Anonymous added on March 16, 2021 | Answered

I have tulips planted for this spring, but we have decided to change the flower bed. I still want them in the new bed, but some construction will need to be done . I would like to remove them from the bed and plant them in the fall. How do I save them properly?

Will you be able to wait till the foliage yellows before digging them up? If not, they may not be able to bloom next spring. They need to be able to renourish before they are dug up. If you are unable to wait, after blooming, I would carefully dig them without disturbing the roots, and move them to pots where hopefully they will continue to nourish. When the foliage yellows, you can store them.
