Hi! I hope somebody can help me...I currently live in 14521 area in NY, and bought a 5 gal hydrangea in a pot...I want to plant it at my other home at zip 12944 in northern adks, but probably can't do it until late spring....can i leave it in the pot at 14521 zip (outside or inside?...i have a 'cooler' foyer i could place the pot in, or should i leave it in the pot outside, or should i plant and then dig it up and transplant to 12944 in late spring, or what? THANKS for any help! Sheri

If the ground has not frozen, you can plant it now, mulch it and keep it moist. Water it every two weeks or so if it is a dry winter. Fall is a good time to plant many shrubs, including hydrangeas. You can also keep it in another protected location (the cooler foyer) provided it is a place where you can water it as needed.
