Yes Sanjy, put them anywhere to die down. If you have any old containers yo can stick them behind the shed or garage. As long as you leave the soil round them.

Tulips are never so good next year but you can plant them in the garden in November, you may get some up, and if you are really keen you can pot up all the little bulblets and bring them on for flowering in about 3 years time.

They havent, but there are Busy Lizzie that dont succumb to it, dont buy any that are called Walleriana. Try New Guinea they will be fine.
