    I dig them up with a lot of soil on them and store in a rolled down compost sack, make some holes in the bottom and around the sides, put in an out of the way place until the green had completely disappeared.  They don’t always come so good next year, some do, some don’t , but worth a try if you’ve got new ones to put in.

    Unless they are species tulips, it's doubtful that they will come back.
