TIME TO CHECK YOUR TUBERS

It is time to pull your tubers out of storage and give them a thorough check. Look for any rot, if the tuber is 3/4 rotten discard. If it is 1/2 rotten you can cut the bad part of f as this will sometimes save your tuber. Check for broken necks on your tubers and if they are weak or broken discard. Also check the top of the tuber for stem rot. This will show up as black rot above the eye of the tuber, you can trim this up and a good idea is to spray this area with lysol. With this all done chack your medium that you have your tubers stored in and make sure it is dry. If it is moist put in fresh dry medium. With this all done put your tubers back into storage and check them again Feb 1.  Good Luck.

  1. I had my glads in a large pot during last summer. I brought the pot into (glads still in and cut back) the garage to overwinter. Now the glads are up ready to set blossom buds. Should I cut them back now? I am in southern Alberta
