Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Before a hard frost, carefully dig up summer-flowering bulbs such as cannas, dahlias, gladioli, caladiums, tuberous begonias, and tuberoses. Shake off soil, dry them thoroughly, label, and store in a well-ventilated, dry, cool (but not freezing), dark place over the winter. Bulbs can be planted outside in the spring when the weather warms.
