Dig around the tulip bulbs with your spade, being careful not to hit or nick the bulbs. Slide the spade under the bulbs and lift them out of the soil. Brush the dirt from each bulb and inspect it for damage or signs of rot such as soft spots.
Discard any bulbs that are damaged or appear diseased. This step is important because you can distinguish the good ones from the bad ones and save the best ones for next replant. You should store bulbs in a dry and cool place for summer. To store them, put the tulip bulbs in a cool place and dry them for a few days.
After flowering, allow the foliage to wither and die, then cut the tulips.
Clean the soil and let the bulbs dry. Discard any damaged ones.
Store bulbs in mesh or paper bags. Label them and store in a cool dark place before replanting in the fall.

Dig a hole at least 8 inches deep for each tulip bulb. Add plenty of peat moss to improve drainage and to retain moisture. Add a low nitrogen bulb food and work it into the soil.
Some tulip growers prefer to add the bulb food to the top of the soil after planting the bulbs and working it into the top two inches of soil. Plant your tulip bulbs to a depth of 8 inches and cover with soil. Firm the soil down with your hands and water throughly.
Consider planting some of your tulip bulbs in the original bed when you transplant them. If they do not do well in the new location, you will still have some tulips that will produce well until the others grow accustomed to their new location.
Keep the bed moist for the next few weeks to give your new bulbs a good start. Well, in this way, we can replant tulip bulbs. And we should keep in mind that this procedure should be done every three years.
