Ok it mite be easy to everyone else but me. I look at the poor plants and go oh my I don't want to kill you. Can I plant them now? Can they be in all sun as lost the instructions. Ok that is me I loose everyhting. But I still have the plants and they are alive. So far so good. But where can I plant them. I want to plant in front of house there is no sun but a little. is that OK? Let me know. Have a good day and thank you.

After flowering, tulips will begin to go dormant until the following year. Go ahead and plant them, full or partial sun is good. Keep the soil height about the same as it is in the pot that they're in, and leave a bit of room between them. If the greens turn brown, don't worry. Just cut them backand they will sleep until next spring.

the like partial shade and partial sunlight planting them either in the spring or fall is fine.. or summer. But its always best to wait until after the Frost Date before planting if you have frost or snow.. May 5th used to be The frost day for Wisconsin USA .. but I always waited till later.. You can always buy a big pot and plant them inside for awhile too if you are nervous :) .. a pot big enough for a full grown tulip but small enough for you to take indoors and outdoors.. What state do you live in?.. The Tulips we have do pretty good they however are planted in part shade and part sunlight areas.. We plant our along the sidewalk, or beside the house.. But if you do that make sure you know where you electricity wires are most electrical companies will come out and spray pain and mark the area with flags too so you know where not to dig. Hope that helps :) . - DNatureofDTrain
