Q.

Bulbs

Zone 32514 | Derbad61 added on May 31, 2016 | Answered

I dug up see bulb plants because they had to be moved or tossed out. Elephant ears, cannas, and Peruvian daffodils. Can I just transplant them or put them in pots?

    In the case of the Daffodils I would dry and store the bulbs until fall, then plant out.
    Where the Elephant Ears and Cannas still actively growing?
    I would pot these up and either continue care or allow the foliage to dry down naturally to feed the bulbs.
    Then store as per the articles below.
