Q.Can I Separate Bleeding Heart Into Container to Sprout the Next Winter

jjandkimmysmom added on June 11, 2011 | Answered

I’ve got a bleeding heart that they say you have to separate every three years. Well I don’t know where I want to plant them next year and I’d like to grow some for my mother. Can I put them in 5 gallon buckets this fall? Will they pop up like they would if I plant them in the ground?

You can do this, but be sure to place the pots neat a sheltered spot for the winter, like the foundation of a building or with the pots covered in mulch. Plants in containers experience conditions like those of plants in one zone colder than your own, so putting them somewhere that will shelter them will increase the chances that they will survive the winter.
