Do you overwinter tender bulbs (tubers and corms) such as crocosmia, dahlias, gladiolas, canna lilies, calla lilies, begonia? If so, what is your best method? (do you store in cardboard boxes? vermiculite or perlite? sand or peat moss?)
I overwintered a crocosmia corm last year in a shoebox with some peat. I misted it a few times through the winter and stored it in a cool room. I was uncertain about it but it grew this year so I’ll do the same again this fall. I’ll try to find a photo to attach later.
Hello @gardenjane! Crocosmia is stunning in bloom! I enjoy the long strapping foliage too. I know it’s not quite hardy in zone 4 and I’ve wanted to give it a try. Thanks for telling us of your success in overwintering it. I’ll add it to my list for next year.
