question about plugs
I am looking to place an order for a tray of Japanese Blood Grass 'Red Barron'. I'd wind up with the plugs toward the end of the month, yielding 2 solid months of time to grow before we hit the 'cold nights' and first frosts, usually around the end of October (Southern NH/Zone 5a). They look to come in 1x1x2" deep trays, so they'd be pretty small. Would it be advisable to hold off and have the plugs delivered next Spring after last frost? Could I plant them in my hell strip and heavily mulch after the top growth dies? Or, could I get the tray and pot up, growing them indoors over the Winter for a Spring planting? I have a home-built DIY grow setup that sits in a cooler room, with 4x105w CFL.
