Fall Planting--Earlier due to cooler weather?
so here in southeastern PA--it's been very cool this month, and I read that due to a colder jet stream which is unlikely to change-- that we may have a frost as early as sometime in September--and snow as early as Thanksgiving.
obviously knowing that predicting the weather can be hit or miss-- given the fact that we've had consistently cooler weather this spring, summer, and heading into fall--I'm wondering if I should be thinking about planting my peonies a bit earlier than planned.
most of the roots are shipping end of Sept. Is there a downside to asking the vendors to ship a week or two earlier ? I was a bit worried about getting them into the ground too close to successive frosts--but maybe this is not an issue for peonies?
