HELP! need advice a,s,a.p.
it is getting colder outside day by day and my enthusiasm for being out there planting tulips is fast waning. i would like to plant them in large pots and overwinter them instead of putting them in the ground.
my question: can/should i leave the planted pots outside for a time before putting them into my unheated garage? if so, at what point do i bring them in -- after a hard freeze? and do i water them after the initial watering after planting?
i admit i do not like to work outdoors on chilly autumn days when the soil is cold, and i ought to have planted before now, but i have becoem a lazy gardener in my "old age" !!
