My greenhouse is starting to freeze. Have lifted the bulbs, hosed off and am drying in the sun. Still have green tops on. Do I cut that off before putting in the basement to store for a few months or store and remove when browned off? First time I have summered them in the greenhouse and they are really healthy. Also, can I trim back the roots or do I leave them long like they are?

Yes, once plants are dry, cut the leaves off (trim the stem/foliage back to about 3 inches from above the bulb), wrap in newspaper and store in a dark, cool location. You can trim the roots if they are quite long but it is best to leave them intact if possible.
