Q.bittersweet seedlings

Zone Brighton Michigan, 481116 | jbrozovich19 added on March 29, 2017 | Answered

My husband, who was seriously ill, started some bittersweet seeds indoors last fall. The seedlings did well and are now 2-3 inches tall in pots. They are getting tall and look like they really need to get out of their pots and be planted. But this is Michigan and I don’t know if they could handle our weather. What should I do with them so they don’t die?

American bittersweet is quite cold-hardy, and you can plant it in the early spring even before the last frost date, as long as the ground is thawed. Now should be a good time.

Here is how to choose a good site for them:
