Are you going to dig them up - or leave them in the ground, Jac?

Their in Pots Spritz! I was thinking of Planting them under some Dead Nettle Ground Cover do u think thats a bad idea? i thought it mite protect them from the Frost?

Jac - I think you need to protect the tubers over the winter, & keep them frost-free. If you can't take the pots into your greenhouse, then bubble-wrap the pots to make sure that the tubers don't freeze, and put the pots close together in a sheltered corner, maybe by the house wall?

Hi Jacque... I've had flowers in my garden doing very strange things this season, too. my dwarf dahlias stopped blooming in July...they came up fine..looked good then stalled..it's later in October and the silly things are starting to bloom again! We haven't had a killing frost yet..but it's only a matter of time. My delphiniums bloomed twice last season...they came up this spring...bloomed in early July, then died! ARGHHHH!
Nice to see that you are still around. Hugs to Summer.
