I just dug up a small bed of half-spent lily-of-the-valley plants...never saw a bee on them and I don't much enjoy them. The plan is to re-plant with something I like and the bee's like better.
The problem is that I can't bring myself to just throw away the Lilys-of the-Valley. I have a pile of the plants outside with leaves on one end and masses of roots on the other.
Can these be stored for the winter, in case I decide to plant them elsewhere next season or maybe give them to somebody who wants them? If so...how to prep?
Thanks

I'm not an expert, but in your latitude, I think your best bet will be to find a neglected corner and put them back in the ground. They like shade, so you can put them behind the garage or something. Won't matter if they are crowded for a while (except it will be harder to separate them again.) Water them well and they should survive the winter.
