Subject: moving tulips
Forum: Upper Midwest Gardening
What is the best way to go about moving tulips? I re-did all my gardens last year, dug up and moved EVERY perennial and in the process tilled the beds. I assumed I would lose my tulips... but I've found that is not the case. However, many of them are coming up where I would not want them. They are done blooming, so I have deadheaded. Usually I leave the green to "feed" for next year. But if I wait to long they will disappear and I will have the same problem next year. I know tulips are usually planted in the fall. If I dig them now... where should I store them till fall? Or can I dig and move all at once?
Any advice would be appreciated. thanks!!
