Tulips can be left in the ground year after year but only where there is excellent drainage in free-draining fertile soil. If you plant onto a layer of gravel or coarase sand this can help.

If they are in pots, like those in the photograph, they can be simply allowed to dry off, turned out when dry and re-potted.

Or they can be left in pots, but run out of space as the bulbs multiply.
