I bought some tuberose bulbs from a nursery, but they didn't have the growing instructions for it. Can you help me out?

Tuberoses are often treated as annuals because they don't bloom well the second year. In northern regions, plant them in containers because they need a long season to flower. Set the bulbs about 2 inches deep outdoors in well-drained, fertile soil. Give them full sun. If you wish to save the rhizomes, dig them before frost and store them in vermiculite in a warm room for the winter.
