Tuberose - Polianthes tuberosa - do I dig up?
The full name of my plant is "Hawaiian Double Pearl Tuberose." I ordered the bulbs from QVC (Roberta's Garden, always been happy with their bulbs).
Late Spring, I stupidly planted them behind tall lilies. Relocated them after lilies started coming up. But threw in Marigold seeds in the same area. DidnÂt expect Marigolds to take off like they did, but theyÂve taken over and tubers have been struggling to grow thru them ever since.
The leaves look healthy but I think the base of the plant would do better in direct sun. I understand they don't bloom until late in season so I think they are doing okay but would be better in another spot.
Question Â can I relocate them NOW to a better area -- or are they something I need to dig up for the winter? The info that came with them is confusing. Talks of them being planted in pots. But they were "sold" on TV as being able to plant in garden in my zone (7 or 7A or 7B??).
I could email RobertaÂs but wanted your expertise as well.
