do I have to left the bulbs out of the ground in winter

On plant Mirabilis



The top growth may be cut back by frost but the tuber may survive the mild winters outdoors - a good mulch would help? But I would suggest that tubers are lifted and stored over winter in a cool frost free place in the same way that you would store dahlia tubers.
