    OH MY WORD Such a good idea! DUH! Once flowers fade and bulbs and tubers are dug up for winter storage, they pretty much all look alike. To ensure that youll replant them in the right location next spring, write the variety or color of the plant directly on each bulb with a permanent marker. Then store the bulbs in peat moss or newspaper in a cool, dark place.

Plant tulip bulbs in November then forget about them until the following Spring. After they've flowered allow them to dry out, lift them shaking off any excess soil and store in a paper bag in a dry, dark place. Plant them again the following Autumn. This way bulbs can last years!

Good Tip ~ To store bulbs, such as dahlias, tuberoses, cannas, and elephant ears, that are too tender to survive outside in cold winters, place them in a box filled with the remnants of old documents from your paper shredder. The paper helps absorb moisture and prevents the bulbs from touching. Keep in a cool, dark, and dry place until you're ready to plant in the spring.
