Can I transplant tulips in the spring?


Tulips cannot be transplanted in the spring; they must be planted in the fall or early winter because they need the cooler temperatures to produce blooms. Gardeners who live in climates that experience early winter temperatures should plant as early as October, according to Tulip World.

Tulip bulbs should be planted at least six weeks prior to an anticipated frost to give the roots enough time to grow. Bulbs should be stored in a cool, dry location if immediate planting is not possible. Tulip varieties that bloom in the spring can be left in the ground during the winter, and they will bloom again for up to three successive years.
