Q.jack in the pulpit

Zone Salem,NY 4-5 | jayprwej added on August 20, 2016 | Answered

I have six plants in pots that I brought to Salem, NY, Zone 4. I have been growing them in the ground in Brooklyn for over 20 years. 2 yesrs ago, I dug up the mother plant and divided them. I planted two bulbs [corms] in Salem which did not survive the winter. Since I am no longer in Brooklyn, what can I do to make sure I do not lose these plants over the winter?
