Yes, you can plant them after the blooms die but they probably won't bloom til next year.

If you are forcing these bulbs for spring blossoms in the house, you usually enjoy the blossoms and then throw out the bulbs. I suppose you could plant them, but most people don't.

I always plant my bulbs after they have flowered and the greenery has been cut back. I dont like to save them to rebloom the next year because sometimes they rot. I dont like to waste anything. So I always plant them in the garden near my door. Then, when they bloom in the spring, I'm treated to the beautiful flowers all over again. If you allow them to bloom inside the house by "forcing" them, they wont bloom until the next spring.

Best of luck
