The Q&A Archives: potted Hyacinth & Tulips

Question: Hi,
I received two beautiful plants as gifts from a local florist. One a Hyacinth the other a Tulip. When can I transplant them into the yard?
Thank you,

Answer: Once the flowers are spent, cut off the flower stalks but leave the foliage alone. After it dies down and turns crispy brown, you can lift the bulbs, remove the dead foliage and plant the bulbs in your garden. They should grow and bloom for you next spring. Enjoy!
