Shipping live tomato plants to WI in January?
Hi everyone, I'd like to try growing some small tomato plants indoors this winter. I have my eye on Red Robin and found a place which sells live plants a few states away. But I'm a little nervous about having live plants (especially tomatoes) shipped in January. Our temps will be high 20s/low 30s over the next few days and they'll go Priority. Someone will be home during the day to take them in immediately.
Any experience with shipping live plants in winter? Would I be better off starting from seed? The reason I'm considering plants is to get going a little sooner with tomatoes.
Thanks very much!
