Hiya Michelle, 
     Tulips are planted in the fall.  After they have bloomed, energy is 
stored in the bulb for next year, and the plant dies down.  Storing bulbs 
should be done in a cool, dry place.  A refrigerator works well for this. 
Plant them when the nights begin to cool off in early autumn, but before 
it gets too cold.  That way they'll have ample time to adjust.
