Overwintering Datura

This is the second time I've grown Triple Yellow Datura and like the first time it's not going to produce seed before the cold weather kills it. Has anyone here ever tried to dig and overwinter one of these in their garage?

RE: Overwintering Datura

Hi Jim! I did last year,I am thinking they would have made it had I not sprained my foot. I wasn't able to get them water for about a month and 1/2 and I think that is what did it. I brought them in in Oct. and they were doing "ok" until January when I hurt my foot.I asked this question on the Brug forum last year also and got some really great info!
Good Luck!

I have overwintered them in the garage in pots, but they seem to do much better from seed in the yard.
They bloom later, but the plants are bigger and I get more flowers.
