Just handed a bag of freshly dug crocosmia corms---Help!
A complete Newbie here......just bought my first pair of gardening gloves!
I have just moved into a house with a yard (yay!) after living in an apartment for almost 20 years. There are no beds dug in the yard yet, and really I do not know where I want to even place beds yet! Alot of brush clearing has to happen first. There are some old overgrown beds, but I would like to see what pops up in them next Spring before I go messing around with them. But a kind-hearted family member has just handed me about 5 pounds of Lucifer Crocosmia corms. I asked her about getting them through the winter unplanted and she has no idea how to do that...she assumed I would be putting them in the ground right away.
What can I do that would give them a shot at surviving unplanted this Winter?
I have read everything from store them in a hanging onion bag to 'plant' them in a big box of peat moss and water them sparingly all winter.
All help appreciated....I know that these are beautiful plants, and I would like to have them thrive somewhere in my new yard!
