Bulbs up each year?

linda adriano asked 11 years ago

Just wondering is it best to take up bulbs each year, dry and store?I heard Daffs are better left in the ground as they multiply? Which ones are better left in and which taken out?

In general all bulbs are better left in the soil. Some are a bit tender in Kilkenny, which is a relatively cold area in winter, and the likes of gladiolus and dahlias might be better lifted, or covered with some soil, compost or sand on the soil surface.
