Spread the tulip bulbs on a layer of newspapers to dry. Step 2Spread a layer of vermiculite, dry sand or peat moss in the bottom of a flat tray or container without a lid.

Step 3Place the dry tulip bulbs in the container. Make sure they have air circulation and that they are only one layer thick.

Step 4Put the tray or container of bulbs in a dark, cool place that has low humidity and plenty of ventilation. Too much humidity will cause the bulbs to rot. A garage is a good place if the temperature remains cool but doesn't drop below freezing. Good luck.
