Baby Perennials Gifted from Warmer Climate

wantoretire_didJanuary 29, 2006

I received 6 baby outdoor perennial plants from a relative in Tennessee, where the ground doesn't freeze. She dug them up and thought I could just plop them in the ground here.

Question: Can I put them in pots and keep them in the garage until spring? It hasn't gotten below freezing in the garage yet, but is pretty chilly. I can give them eastern light.

Hollyhock

Columine

They'll be fine in the garage. Just don't let them dry out, and make sure they have drainage. In May you can take them outside for a few hours everyday to get them used to the weather, then plant.
