Q.Wintering Bulbs

Anonymous added on May 25, 2014 | Answered

I have Callas, Glads, Freesias, and some succulents planted in pots. Do they have to be dug up in the fall or can I just bring the whole pot in and store in a cool, dry place? This is my first time for succulents. Will they last over the winter and grow again next year?

The bulbs can be stored in the pots in a cool, dry location. You will need to occasionally water your bulbs in containers about once a month over winter to keep them from totally drying out. Then put the pots back out once warm temps return. As for the succulent plants, these can simply be brought indoors and cared for as houseplants, again watering no more than once monthly or as needed over winter.
