The Q&A Archives: Elephant's Ears

Question: I need to know when and how to bring in my elephant ears plants... they got very large this year outside and I know they need to come inside for the winter. Should they come in before or after frost? Thanks for the help!

Answer: Wait until the first frost kills back the foliage, then cut away the dead foliage and dig the tubers. Store them in a cool, dry place for the winter months, then replant in fresh potting soil in the early spring. Enjoy your garden!
