Storing tulip bulbs is easy. If you purchase bulbs before you want to plant them store them in a paper bag. Make sure that this bag is kept away from ripening fruit.
As fruit ripens it gives off ethylene gas which destroys the flower bud within the bulb. They can be stored anywhere that is dark, cool and dry. Moisture will cause them to rot. Good ventilation is also a plus.
If you wish to dig up bulbs from the ground and store them this is also easy. By following a few simple guidelines you will be able to successfully store and replant your bulbs.
