Easter is over but the life of your Easter Plants doesn’t have to be. The lovely tulips, daffodils and other plants that have been previously forced into bloom can be planted as bulbs in your outdoor garden. For best results when planting outdoors, sprinkle a small amount of bulb boosting fertilizer on top of the soil, this will help the bulb to flower again. Forced bulbs use up a ton of their energy during the forcing process so they may not be as prolific as others when replanted outdoors. Tulips, in particular, don’t come back as well after being forced. Hyacinths and daffodils will generally continue to put out blooms, as well as some of the littler bulbs, like crocus and snowdrops. Wait for all the foliage to die back, cut the foliage to the dirt and stop watering it, let the bulbs dry out in a cool, dry, dark place and then plant them in the fall. Not all forced bulbs will flower again, and it could take a year or two before they return to their normal blooming cycle.
