Gloriosa superba has stopped growing

United Kingdom Gb

I bought a Gloriosa superba this spring and it has flowered twice, but now the leaves are yellowing and it has stopped growing. what should I do? cut it back and dry the tubulars??
Any advise would be greatfully received.

On plant Gloriosa superba



As it is not hardy in the UK I think you will have to dig it up after the leaves have died back and keep it dry and frost-free until planting time comes round again.

I leave mine in the pot and stop watering to let it dry out then leave it in cool place to over winter. Whan spring comes i take the tubers out and repot with fresh compost and start them off again.
