do I have to left the bulbs out of the ground in winter


On plant Mirabilis


Answers

 

The top growth may be cut back by frost but the tuber may survive the mild winters outdoors - a good mulch would help? But I would suggest that tubers are lifted and stored over winter in a cool frost free place in the same way that you would store dahlia tubers.
