WANTED: question about trading for snowdrops
I also posted this in the on-topic discussions. I am involved in a trade of some seeds for a few snowdrop bulbs.
I am in zone 7 (New York City) and the person I am trading with is in California. While this time of year is perfectly fine to take snowdrops out of the ground in California I am not sure that it is a good time to put them in the ground in NYC.
Here are my questions:
Could they freeze/die in the mail?
If I do trade, when should I plant them? immediately? after the frost? in the next fall? (can they survive for a year on the shelf?)
Any opinions are welcome
