My friend is digging up his tulips and I'm going to take them. The foliage
is dying back now. Do I need to replant them immediately or can I hold them
in a dark place and replant them in the fall instead?
The bulbs will be better off if you put them in the ground as soon as
you get them. A little bone meal in each hole should be added as you
plant them. You can plant annuals right over the newly planted bulbs if
Has the foliage fully ripened? If not, then you're going to set the
bulb back severely by transplanting while the leaves are green and
growing. Keep as much soil around them as you can and disturb the
roots as little as possible.
