How to handle tulip bulbs in Zone 7

Posted by suzana 7 (My Page) on

I've been reading messages on the forum about tulips but the more I read, the more confused I get. I will ask a specific question so that someone can give me a straight answer, if possible.
I live in the zone 7, planted tulips in the Autumn of last year. Today I dag the bulbs out as the foliage was turning yellow. My question is, can I immediately plant them back since the whole bed is nice and open or do I have to store them and plant them back in the Autumn?
Many thanks in advance.

RE: How to handle tulip bulbs in Zone 7

It depends on how much rain you get. I am in a very dry area, so I don't even bother to dig my bulbs in the first place. I do pull the container bulbs and store them in mesh baskets on an airy shelf in the shade prior to fall replanting, but that's only the containers that I'm able to lift. If the container is too heavy, it gets left, tulips and all, and I just plant more stuff over them.
