Answer: Once the bulbs are planted, you won't need to dig and replant them, with the exception of the Elephant ears, caladium and begonias. These are frost tender and should be dug after the first fall frost and stored in a cool but above freezing weather. The rest should be fine. Dutch Iris are typically spring bloomers so they may not bloom for you this year, but the rest will bloom in summer. For extra winter protection, cut down the frost killed foliage in late fall and mulch over the bed with 3-4 inches of straw, pine boughs, dried leaves, etc. to help insulate the soil for excessive cold. Enjoy your garden!
