: I recieved 2 potted plants recently and need to know how to transplant them. It's early March here in MI and I'm not sure.

: I've let them 'die back' and not touched the drying leaves so they could feed, but am not sure what to do next to help them survive.

: Any help would be MUCH appreciated:)
hi sue all you have to do is let them finish there cycle of dying down andpull them and dust off the dirt be sure there dry and keep them cool at 35 to 45 degrees for at lest 14 to 18 weeks or till fall then plant again. bone meal is a good food for them too. you can force tulips and daffadils 3 times a year in the house. by cilling the bulbs as mentioned time wise. and do it in your frig. jimmygardenseed can be found on garden web.com.
