Tulip bulbs

Don Foley asked 6 years ago

I have just removed 20 Golden Apeldoorn Tulip Bulbs, which I planted last October, from a large pot to make room for summer bedding. I have read that it is not worth keeping Tulip Bulbs for later planting as they often don’t flower again or do so very erratically. Whats your view on reusing Tulip Bulbs. Should I throw them away and get new ones in the Autumn?

Plant the spent bulbs in the garden, somewhere well drained, adding some sand perhaps, and there is a fair chance they will build up again to flowering size. But they will not be useable again for pots.
