planting quart perennials now
I'm sure this has been asked and answered many times but I need to hear it again:
I live in Lexington MA where winters are not consistently snowy. I am not going to try to winter over my new quart perennials in their pots.
They will either go into their new spots or I'll plant them in the beds where I "grow on" small plants I 'd unpot them.
What is your opinion and or experience with either option. ]
My inclination is to put them in the raised planting beds. At least they'll all be in one place so I can continue to water for a few weeks, and mulch easily when the soil is completely frozen.
I managed to forget that in the past I haven't had great luck planting perennials this late/ I figured there wasn't enough time for good root development. But these were terrific bargains and I was looking for these particular plants.
So what would you do to maximize their chances of surviving> /They are all epimediums and two fall anemones; can't get much tougher than these.
Thanks so much
