Question about Tulip bulbs

Postby Mervyn » May 01, 2009 10:18 am

In my back yard I have some tulips that are so old I can't even remember when they were planted, at this point I have 4 which are trying to come up now through what is grass, and they are not doing so well.

Can I dig them up now to replant them later in the fall ? I dont think they will flower this year, and in past I think they just got mowed over anyways.

You can dig them up now and replant where you want them. Just be careful to have the foliage/stem/bulb intact. Plant quite deeply.
