Question about tulips
My husband and I bought a beautiful container that had yellow tulips in it. I have been looking up ways to take care of tulips and many sites say to dig up the tulips once the leaves have dried out in the late fall and keep them in a dry cool location. If I planted the container in the ground and just dug up the container when it came time to storing the tulips, would this be okay? There isn't much in the tags on how to take care of tulips that come in a container. So far I have gathered that I can plant them in a sunny location and cut off the tulips once they have stopped blooming. Then I could cut the leaves down to ground level once they have completely dried up. Also that they need storage in a garage or basement during the winter months. Any tips on how to take care of tulips would be appreciated and whether or not it would be easier for me to plant them in the container or just go ahead and plant them outside of the container. (I am in zone 5-6) Thanks for all your help! I am trying to develop more of a green thumb and all your suggestions and opinions help me so much. :) This community is so helpful! And here is a picture of the tulips. Yellow flowers are one of my favorites!
