Answer: After the foliage withers and dies you can safely dig and transplant your tulip bulbs. You'll want to wait until the leaves die down on their own. While they're green they are busy manufacturing and transporting energy to the bulbs for next year's floral display. If you cut off the leaves before they've finished their jobs, the bulbs won't have enough stored energy to produce flowers next spring. When replanting, space the bulbs at least 8" apart so they won't have to compete for moisture and nutrients. Enjoy your new tulip bed!
