Planting Hydrangea root

lawndevilMarch 12, 2010

Lowes in my area is selling PG and Nikko blue roots. The roots are inside the store at about 70 degrees F. Some of the roots are already starting to grow leaves.

Can I buy them now and plant immediately outside or should I wait until danger of frost has past to plant them outside? Right now temperatures are around 50 during the day and 30 at night.

Thanks

Yes, you should wait until after danger of frost is past to plant them; if you plant them now and the temp goes below 32, all the new growth will be frozen and the plant will have to spend extra energy creating new leaves later.

You can go ahead and purchase them, just keep them inside (like a garage or basement).
