PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Last winter I found a purple potato in a bag I got from a food pantry. I saved it and planted it in the spring, so now I have a whole bunch of purple potatoes. How do I store some of them for next year's planting? I am really enjoying the taste of these and want more next year!
You need an area that is dark and cold, but not freezing... prior to the days of concrete basements, houses used to have basements that were ideal for this! This was the idea of a root cellar too (though I have no experience with one of these).
