Advice on keeping those pencil tubers

flowergirl70ksSeptember 29, 2013

It will be time to dig. How about some advice for me on how to keep those long skinny tubers from drying up??

I have been very happy with the sulfur/saran wrap method for the past few years. After dividing, the tubers are tossed in a baggie with garden sulfur and then wrapped individually in saran wrap. Stored in a cool dark place. Last year with over 200 tubers, I lost 3-4 to rot, and none dried up.

It takes a little time, but it works.
