Planting Ferns and Peonies

Aketter added on October 18, 2015 | Answered

Can I still put ferns and a peony in the ground this late in the season? Due to family drama I was just able to scramble and dig up heirloom ferns and a peony. Should I leave them in my basement is over winter or can I still put them in the ground mid October?

You can still get them in the ground. Though the temperatures are dropping and we have had frost, the ground is not frozen.
Continue to water them until the ground freezes, this will ensure the roots have a start.
Adding mulch will help with moisture retention and protection.
