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!

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!
