The Q&A Archives: Easter flower bulbs

Question: Can I dry the bulbs of my Easter flowers and replant in fall or do I have to plant them in my garden now, which looks kind of ugly???

Answer: You can save the bulbs and plant them in the fall. Wait until the leaves die down naturally and then pull off the dried leaves at soil level and unpot the bulbs. Brush off excess soil and store them in a cool, dry place until this fall. Plant them in your garden and they should bloom again next spring. Enjoy!
