I have a 5 foot Basjoo in a pot that has been outdoors all summer. Can I plant it in the ground now? Zone 7/8... I have a bog garden where I was growing taro, would that be too wet for the Basjoo?
thanks, Dave

Im planning on planting some basjoo too, I kind of have the same question.
could i put out smal ones this late too, or do i just wait?

I think you would be taking a rish in any zone except maybe 10/11 planting out now the roots just don't have time to get established before the temps drop. If you do decide to plant I would mulch HEAVY around the base
