After tulips bloom, remove the flower stems at the base and then allow the foliage to continue to grow and eventually ripen (turn brown) so that the bulbs can rebuild their strength to bloom again. After the foliage has withered down on its own you can cut it off at soil level. You can leave the bulbs in the ground or you can dig them up, store them in a cool, dry location, then replant in the fall. Best wishes with your garden!
