Cool Weather Blues

rose_is_a_rose(z4 SW Ont)May 16, 2005

Oh my.... when it is going to warm up?? *sigh* At this rate we won't be able to plant annuals until June! I usually plant May 24 weekend.

I have some perennials waiting at the back door to go to their new homes in the garden.... I'm wondering if they would be alright to plant in these cooler temps? or should I just put on my patiences hat?? The colombines are about to bloom in their pots and the coral bells are growing like crazy... I guess they think they are in a green house.

I think the perennials would be fine right now. I planted a few much earlier in APril and they are fine. I am with you on the cool weather. I usually plant out this past weekend, but too cold.
