Need advice on nurserying plants over the winter
Is "nurserying" a word? If not, think some of you will know what I mean and be able to help.
I've bought a variety of perennials on sale over the last few weeks and due to a back injury am not personally able to prepare the place where I had planned to plant them. At best, I can get some help to get them in the ground for the winter, and then dig them up/prep the ground/replant in the spring.
I assume they have to be buried to avoid freezing. Should I have a trench dug and just line them up, and should I bury them in the pots or take them out?
I have several heucheras, japanese painted ferns, fall blooming anemones, obedient plants, perennial violets, Jacob's ladder, Lady's Mantle....etc. Most of the pots are 4-6", a few are gallons.
This is so frustrating. Thank you in advance for your help!
