What are you digging and storing?
I have some new things to dig this year. I dug up my tuberose today. I had one very fragrant stalk of blooms that finally opened up about three weeks ago but another stalk just came up recently and isn't even close to opening up. I'm going to try to pot that one up and let it bloom in the house. Has anyone tried that? Any tips on storing the others?
I dug up my glads today too. One is a very pretty color and called 'Plum Tart'. The ones I stored last year, in the garage, were no good this spring so I hope I do better this time.
This will be my third time storing cannas and I've had mixed luck with those. I've had good luck storing elephant ears but haven't dug those yet or my cannas. I'm hoping for a nice warm day to get out and dig those after this freeze. I love 'em but it's a pain to dig them up every year. I always leave a few in the ground but I just know if I leave them ALL in the ground it will drop to 25 below.
I had one dahlia to dig up and don't know what to do with it. ???
It's soooo muddy out. Some of my glads and the tuberose, I could just pull out of the ground.
Any confessions? Do you ever leave stuff in the ground that you know you should dig? lol
