Isn't October a bit late for planting?
I thought I'd give Gurney's a chance (OK, OK- I was enticed by that $25 coupon!) and placed an order for cushion mums, asiatic lily bulbs, allium bulbs and lavender. My order is scheduled to ship 10/03 - 10/23. Isn't this a bit late to plant (except for the spring bulbs)? How long does it take a transplant to settle in for the winter?
Also, when is the first frost expected in New Jersey?
