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?
