When can I tip my pots up?
Yesterday I saw one of my pots had pips emerging. We also had over an inch or rain and the temp was 54 oF, The W.C. 8 day forcast showed near normal conditions of 45 oF in daytime and 27 oF at night. That would bring us to March 19th.
My pots are laying on their sides and semi-sheltered. Is it OK to upright them now and move them out to where they will get moisture? Even if it goes down below 27 at night, with dt temperatures well above freezing I hardly thing the pots would freeze hard like Ken warns against.
Though I've done much propagating garden plants from all sorts of cuttings, layering, air-layering, seeds and so on they were always either indoors or in warmer weather. This is my first experience with intentionally leaving potted hostas outdoors. I have eleven..
Mercy! What am I to do?
