For the first time, I've grown tulips in containers - and very lovely they've been, too! However, they're now about to be dead-headed. Should I leave them in the containers, unwatered, to die back and then lift and dry them for next autumn, or am I supposed to leave them in and over-plant them. When we return from holiday on around 20 May, I'm going to need those containers to fill with pelargoniums, etc. and I think the tulip bulbs, although properly planted, are to shallow to accommodate roots as well. Any suggestions, pretty please?
