They all survived
I had 24 assorted perennials in 4 inch pots that I recieved from Bluestone and Santa Rosa last fall. They never made it to their permanent place because I was too gimpy for awhile to do any yard work - so in a moment of desperation in Oct I dug one big hole and stuck them all in it - pots and all. I buried them in about a foot of leaves and threw some water on there when I thought about it. I checked today and they are all putting out new growth. Today I am cleaning up a bed with 2 big roses in it - scraping out the old mulch, adding compost, putting back the old mulch and topping off with some new mulch. Most of the overwintered perennials are headed to that flower bed. They should all make it to their permanent locations in the next few days. Then to start planting all of the winter sowed stuff that's big enough to plant out...........have 300 cups winter sowed and probably half are ready to be planted.
