Keeping tender bulbs - Knowledgebase Question

Question by dfgquilter

Hello..
I have several pots of either plants with bulbs or rhizomes.
I keep the pots OUTSIDE all summer.
In the fall, can I just bring the pots in and leave the plants
IN THE POTS? OR, DO I HAVE TO DIG OUT THE BULBS AND DRY THEM AND PUT IN PEETMOSS?
It would be alot less work if I could just keep the plants in their original pots.
Thanks, Dorian

I just leave mine in the pots and store them that way. You can cut off the dead foliage once it withers away and simply store the pots and bulbs as is. When you take them outdoors and begin watering again, they will sprout right on time.
