Q.Keeping lilly and tulip bulbs flowering next season

Zone 11366 | Raymond Irrera added on April 26, 2017 | Answered

Since their blooms are gone, I would like to transplant tulip and Lilly bulbs from the pots they’re now to the garden, so that they will bloom next spring. What do I do with the withering leaves, as well as the bulbs, and when do I transplant the bulbs outdoors?

Put your pots outside in half day sun and water lightly while the tulip plants slip into dormancy. The lilies may stay green for weeks or months while they gather strength for next year's show. When the leaves have yellowed, pop the stems off and plant the bulbs. https://www.leafari.com/lily-planting-guide.html
