How can I transplant my tulips when I move?
I have a large garden box outside my apartment where I planted tulips last fall. The blossoms are just opening. I'm moving in a few weeks--the box is too large to move and it doesn't have a bottom. How can I transplant the tulips without damaging them?

You're probably not going to want to hear this, but you're best off leaving the tulips for the next owner to enjoy and planting new ones for yourself this autumn. It is stressful on tulips to be transplanted when they are actively growing. The best time to transplant them is in late summer or fall. If your bulbs did recover from being transplanted, they probably wouldn't bloom well anyway, because hybrid tulips bloom well for only a couple of years.
