A Quick Tip from "The Weekend Gardener"

If you really dread digging up your tender summer bulbs to store them during the winter, you might try this tip from the "Weekend Gardener";

Many of us love our tender summer bulbs such as dahlia, gladiola, and lilies, but let's be honest, we don't like the bother of digging, packing, and storing them indoors through the winter.

Worry no more.....

Here's the easy way:

Carefully dig up your summer bulbs in the fall before the freezing weather comes.

After digging up the bulbs, spread them on the ground to dry in the shade or, if it's going to rain, spread them indoors in the garage.

Allow them to dry for about one week.

Leave any soil on bulbs - that way you don't have to bother about storing them in vermiculite.

When the bulbs are completely dry, place the bulbs in plastic garbage bags, and leave the bags open.

Now how easy is that?
