I have several hundred daffs that I am digging up today. They are just done blooming, and I want to dig them while I can still kind of tell what they are so I can label them.
I know to leave the foliage on, and I will cut off the blossom so it wont made seed.
Next though, what is the best way to store them for say 6 months or longer maybe?
I am moving and I want to bring them with me, but it might be awhile before they get replanted. I have some shoe boxes. I thought after I dig them I can lay them out until the foliage dies back, cut that off, and then put them in the shoe box? Will they dry out though? Wondered if I should take them out once a month or ? and soak them overnight in some water? or mist them?
thanks for any tips!
