Hi folks my question is..
I have just lifted my tulips as the rain got them at the w/end and I would like to know if I can cut the stems to store the bulbs or should I leave them in one piece



If they've died back you can cut them but while they are still green they are feeding the bulb for next year.
If the leaves have not died back you can plant them somewhere temporary until they have. But tulips often don't do very well the following year - some do, some don't.
