Plant bulbs as soon as possible, once you have received your shipment. If you cannot plant right away, remove the bulbs from plastic bags and put them on trays with damp peat moss or sawdust in a cool, well-ventilated place until you have a chance to plant them. Do not let the bulbs freeze. Plant outdoors once the conditions are right for your hardiness zone.
Because they are extremely sensitive to cold, plant them 3" deep and 5" apart when the soil has warmed up well. For an earlier start, pot them up indoors 4-6 weeks before nights are warm and then transplant to the garden.
For best effect plant tuberoses in groups of at least 5 toward the back of the border. Prefers full sun and rich loamy soil. Feed monthly from the time shoots appear. Lift in fall after foliage has browned, cut the stems off and store in a dry place. Many gardeners treat tuberoses as annuals, starting with new bulbs each year rather than wintering over.
