Tulip Bulbs

KS Gal added on March 4, 2016 | Answered

What do I do with tulip bulbs that have just begun to peek out of the ground but have to remove them for a new electric power pole to be placed? There are crocus and hyacinths too.

I would find a new location and plant them right away.

You will likely lose the flowers for this spring.

If you are not able to break the ground due to cold or frost,
Place them in pots with a good quality potting soil for the spring.

Plant them back in a new location after blooming or leave in the pots until the leaves have died down.
