Thank You.

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

If you haven't done so already set the tulips in an outdoor location but move them to the full sun gradually over a period of a week to 10 days. Keep the plants well watered. When they have acclimated to the sun you can carefully remove them from the pot and plant them. Note that tulips usually don't naturalize and rebloom in your area so you may see only foliage and not blooms but it is worth a try.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
