I dug the bulbs up, then cut the roots and took off most of the dirt. I now have them hanging w stems and leaves attached. I figured to let nutrients go back to the bulbs. Is this right to do? Thanks! :)

I take it you are in an area where the plants would not survive the winter outside. If you have a really sunny window and they are normally container grown, they can be wintered over inside. Here is some info for storing the bulbs over the winter.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
