: Can someone tell me how to cut tulips properly so I may enjoy them in my house? Thank you
When cutting tulips from your garden for indoor display, cut only the stem and one leaf. This will allow the bulb to survive and flower next spring. Do be sure and make a second cut just before putting in water that is on an angle.
