Tulips

Zone 87120 | drecio added on April 10, 2016 | Answered

I grew tulips in glass vases just before Easter. They grew brilliantly. Now I don't know what to do with the bulbs now that blooming is done. Help! I want to be able to plant them outside.

    Tulips that have been forced do not come back very well when planted out.
    It never hurts to try though and I generally always plant mine in the garden and feed them with bulb booster fertilizer.
    Here are some articles for you.
