Potted Tulips

Anonymous added on February 23, 2014 | Answered

I received potted, blooming tulips on Valentine's Day. The blooms have withered, but I am wondering if there is any way to salvage the bulbs for outside planting once the time is right. I live just outside of Indianapolis, IN. If the bulbs can be preserved, how do I go about this, and when should/can I put them in the ground? Is it prudent to keep watering the foliage (can I plant them in full leaf, or do I need to only plant the bulbs?)?
