Remember, that if you are keeping your bulb pots outside, to put them in a protected area and check them for water about every 10 days! Don't let them dry out completely! When the bulbs are done blooming in the spring, leave them be until the foliage begins to yellow and die back. When that happens, cut off the foliage, take the bulbs out of the pot, and plant them in your flower beds!
