Planting perrenials in October?
I am about to place my first order with Santa Rosa gardens just because of the fantastic sale and good reviews on Daves. Since I am still new to gardening though I need some input.
In selecting a shipping date I am not sure what is best. My Bluestone order this spring really thrived and all plants got to full size rarely quickly. I am concerned about this fall order of plants not having enough time if I plant them now to get established for the winter. Will I be ok if I have them shipped out next week and plant them next weekend? I know fall is a common time for planting and transplanting but is there anything I can do to assure that they survive the winter or if possible should I delay shipment till the spring?
