Can tulip bulbs grown in containers in California be dug up after flowering, chilled, and replanted the following fall, again in containers?

You absolutely can! In fact, the process you mention is the only way to get your tulips to rebloom. Wait until the foliage dies back on its own then cut it off at ground level. Dig your bulbs, brush off excess soil, and store in a cool, dark place until next fall. In September place your bulbs in a paper bag and store them in the refrigerator. In December plant them outdoors. They should bloom in early spring. Enjoy!
