Hello,
I harvested a few seed pods last week or so and planted the seeds in one of my mini green houses. I now have 20-30 seedling apprx 3 inches tall.
How to save them to survive the MO winter?
Thanks

Did you save any seed so that you can start them next Spring so they have to time to make it?
Or, just don't worry about it. My Hibiscus plants are only 2" tall and they have to make it thru -30f this winter. They will be covered lightly with leaves tho.

Yes, I have saved plenty. I was wanting to save the plants that are already started. I s this a project to take indoors for the winter?
Thanks

Nope-they will do just fine outside. Cover with leaves to make sure.

OK to transplant in a couple of weeks and then mulch?

If these are little seedling we are talking about It would be wise to overwinter them inside. Plant them out come spring.
They will not survive winter weather so small. IMHO
