Storing Tuberose??

Hi, I live in zone 5, a little too cold for my single and double Tuberose. I'm not sure if I can store the bulbs dry or if I have to keep them in pots over the winter.
any help?
Thanks!

RE: Storing Tuberose??

I got this when I googled toberose:

Just before frost dig up the bulbs, cut off the tops to within 2 inches of the apex of the bulb. They may then be placed in shallow boxes and left out in the sun and air for a week or more, to cure. Each evening, if the nights are cold, they should be removed to some room where the
temperature will not fall below 40. When the outer scales have become dry, the remaining soil may be shaken off and the bulbs stored away in shallow boxes for the winter. They keep best in a temperature of 45 to 50. It should never fall below 40.

Hope that helps!
Patty
