|how to store bulbs over winter months so I can re-pot in spring-asiatic lily specifically|
|Asiatic lilies never really go dormant so you can't store them the way you would dahlia tubers or gladiolus corms. You can store them in ventilated bags (onion sacks) in cool rooms or in the gararge if it remains above freezing. Make sure the roots are wrapped in moist (damp, not wet) newspaper, or put the bulbs in bags of barely moist peatmoss sphagnum. The material must be damp, not wet/soaked. If the roots are allowed to dry out, the bulb will die. If kept too wet, the bulb will rot. Best wishes with your lilies.
