Tips For Overwintering Tender Bulbs

Tips for lifting tender bulbs such as Canna, Dahlia, Colocasia etc. before first frost. 

Cut off any top foliage at the crown and dig bulbs up from the ground and remove any excess soil. 

Allow bulbs to dry out thoroughly.  

Once bulbs have dried place in a brown paper with peat moss.

Store bulbs in a cool dry location, where temps do not get below freezing. Temps ranging in the forties are ideal.

Keep away from warm temps and light to allow bulbs to remain dormant till next spring.
