Let the foliage die back naturally before digging them up and then trim the stem back to about 3 inches from above the tuber. The tubers can then be removed and stored. Wrap them in newspaper and store them in a cool, dry place. In the spring, they can be planted out in your garden (and dug up again in fall).
