I have a few tulips bulbs left from last fall that did not get planted. Should I plant them now or try to store the bulbs over the summer and plant in the fall?

I'd get them into the ground or into pots as soon as possible. Tulip bulbs - all bulbs for that matter - store energy for the next year's growth and floral display. By keeping them out of the ground you're interrupting the natural cycle and they will wither and die. Hope it's not too late for yours!
