Q.Can I dig up tuberose tubers and bring in before they turn yellow?

Zone Western NY state | patsew added on November 7, 2014 | Answered

My tuberose just started sending up bloom stalks, but the temp is going down to low 30 and upper 20. The leaves have not turned yellow yet. I don’t have the room to put in sunny window, and don’t know what to do.

Why don't you try digging it up and putting it into a pot so you can bring it in for the night, and set it back outside in the morning when it warms up a bit. Make it a large pot so you can include lots of roots. When it finishes blooming and starts to turn yellow, you can store the tubers as usual.
