Tulip bulbs

opossumtrax(6)May 2, 2012

I just dug up 3 wayward tulip bulbs without checking to see if this is the right time of year to do this. I could still see some of their green leaves after the lawn was mowed and knowing that in a few weeks they will be gone and I won't be able to locate them, I just went ahead and dug them. Please advise what I should do with them. Transplant them now? I live in Maryland. Thank you.

If you have a cold winter climate they need to be planted either now or in the autumn. They need the winter cold temps. If you don't have a cold winter they will need chilling before they are planted in the spring. Just keeping them and planting in spring won't work in either climate type.
