clematis - how/when to move young plants from indoors to outdoors
I have 2 young clematis plants (Dr. Ruppel & Sweet Summer Love) that I received in US mail in 4" pots. I transplanted them to larger (maybe 8" diameter pots) in a sunny unheated room (zone 6b).
They were in very bad shape but now are growing well - 'Dr. Ruppel' just had a bloom. SS Love has grown to about 4 feet tall.
How and when do I move them out onto my balcony which is pretty sunny but very exposed to wind and weather?
Should they be growing indoors like this?
I just don't know what the next step is. Any help greatly appreciated.
