Cure Your Bulbs Before You Store Them

By Sashagirl

When it's time to dig your summer flower bulbs, make sure you dry them thoroughly before storing them in paper bags or cardboard boxes in a warm, dry spot for the winter. No fancy equipment needed. You can just rummage for an old screen door, lay it across a couple of sawhorses, and you'll have a drying rack.

I usually store mine in the coolest closet in my house; ranging from maybe 60 degrees, down to 45 or so. Do you store yours warmer than this?
