Caring for your potted Easter Lily, Tulips, Hyacinths and Daffodils

Once the flower has faded on your bulb plant, remove the flower stalk, but not the leaves. Find a sunny space in your garden that would be the perfect spot for spring color. Dig your hole about 8 inches deep and as wide as the pot your plant is in. Stir bulb food or bone meal into the bottom of the hole. Transplant your potted plant. Allow the foliage to naturally die back, (this feeds the bulb). Next spring, you will be able to enjoy the blooms of your bulb plant once again.

If you are transplanting an Easter Lily, don’t be surprised if you don’t see it return in spring, as this is a hardy lily that normally blooms in summer.
