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?
The stalks should not have been cut, but there is not much to be done for that; and the flowers may still be ok. Tulips do not always respond well to forcing and then planting outside, but it is worth trying. Here are directions on how to do it:
Several tulips in containers were purchased at Walmart for display at our church for Easter. We would like to keep the tulip bulbs and plant them in the fall but are not certain about the correct procedure.
We purchased tulips in pots for indoor color. The flowers have all shed and we will plant the bulbs outdoors when our grounds person can make it here to do this. How do we store the plants until then? Is dark okay? Do we keep watering or let them dry? Should we leave them in the soil, or put the bulbs in bags?
My niece gave me a beautiful pot of tulips for Easter. The flowers are gone now and the stems are starting to turn yellow and die. I need help with what I should do next to save the bulbs for planting in the fall. I'm looking forward to your assistance with this.

I have a beautiful tulip plant in a pot with about ten flowers on it. How should I plant it out in my garden? I also have a daffodil plant with five flowers and a hyacinth. I know these are all bulb plants, but I don't know what to do now that I have them at home.

I live in Zone 7a in southern Nevada and got a pot of grocery store blooming forced tulips for Easter. I know I need to leave the foliage on as long as possible, to let the bulbs build up food. But once the foliage dies back, what do I do with the bulbs? Leave them in the pot? Take them out and plant them in the ground? Our climate is very dry and hot through the summer. Do they need any water through the summer? I know they may not bloom again, but I'd like to try.
