We live in mid TN and have planted bulbs in the garden. Should we dig up bulbs and bring inside or cover the plants with peat moss for next summer’s blooms?

They will survive year round outside in Zones 7 or higher, so if you are in Zone 7 or higher, it will grow and bloom every year if you leave it in the ground. If you are in Zone 7, I would recommend mulching it in the winter, just in case you get a cold winter. Any zones lower than this require digging up.
