Are these new guys gonna be ok in these pots until planting?
My clematis order showed up. I bought 4. I had read somewhere it's better to put them in a pot and let thier roots develope more than gently transplant them to thier perm. spot in the fall (instead of planting now). Which would work out best for me since the spots I have for them have MG there now. My ? is I potted them up in trade gallon pots I have left over and these pots are black in color. I realize they need thier roots cool, so I am worried about having them in these pots. I did top off each pot with 2 inches of mulch, but the sides of these pots still get hit with 3-4 hours direct sun a day. Are these roots gonna over heat? What else can I do.
Thank you so much for all your help
