Q.garden clean up

Zone 6 | les2wilde@aol.com added on October 17, 2015 | Answered

I may have asked this — but is it almost garden clean-up time?

1- I have had callas for several years in pots in Brooklyn, NY but did not realize I could keep them, so dumped the pots into the garden, and guess what, this year I had 8 calla plants in the garden, one of which bloomed a much bigger flower than the ones that usually bloom and it was a COLD winter! How could this happen and now should I pull them up and over-winter them as recommended?

2-I always have great tuberous begonias in pots also. I keep them and replant and got new ones, but there were hardly any blooms. Could there be a reason?

Thank you.
