The Q&A Archives: Planting

Question: I bought Tuber Rose - Pearl White at your Warminster store. There were no planting instructions included. Please help me.

Answer: This is a bulb (tuber) that blooms in the fall with fragrant double white flowers. It likes a warm climate, plenty of sun, and takes a long time to come into bloom. It can be planted in the ground after the last expected frost or in a large container and kept in a bright warm location until it can be safely set outdoors. Use about a dozen bulbs crowded together for a nice display. Water them once at planting and then wait until they show some growth to water again. Then keep them slightly moist. Since the bulbs are not reliably hardy where you are, planting them in a container makes it easier to bring them indoors over the winter if you want to try to keep them for next year.
