Storing Lily Bulbs Over Winter

jefsjoy@gmail.com added on November 7, 2016 | Answered

I have dug up all my bulbs. I live in the very northern part of Wisconsin. Many of my bulbs have sprouted baby bulbs from the base of the parent bulb. There is also a lot of of roots off the bottom. Do I separate the babies from the parent? Do I take off all the roots before storing?
