You can dig them up and store them till fall, but first you have to wait till the leaves wither and turn yellow. Otherwise, the bulb won't be able to store up nutrition for next year. If your location doesn't get cold enough for successive blooming of tulips, you can treat them as annuals and discard after blooming.
