|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.
