I lifted these oxalis iron cross from a container and the pic is of what i dug out. can I store these for next year?
if so, do I store the full thing or the small things that is growing from the larger bulb. the smaller corm things are what I planted in the first place.




Can't you just repot it and leave it outside? I never take mine out of the pot, just leave it in and it grows again the following year ,although it is in a sheltered spot. Though mine is Oxalis triangularis, which I think is slightly more tender than Iron Cross.

Hi Usernut you need to repot them, they will not be at all happy sitting around out of the ground over winter.

I can repot them now, should I repot the full thing or remove the corms and pot them?

Just repot the corms and be very gentle.

Plant them as they are, at the same level as before.
