Taking Care of Valentine’s Day Tulips

Anonymous added on March 15, 2011 | Answered

My fiance bought me some beautiful tulips in a pot for Valentine's Day and they have already bloomed, and the blooms have died. My grandfather cut the stalks of the tulips while I was at work. I am worried this was a no no. How do I take care of the tulips, and when should I plant them outside?
