Q.Dormant Plants

JohnT added on March 21, 2024 | Answered

I have some dormant plants that I ordered too soon. The garden soil is not ready, I’m behind schedule, as usual. My question is can I wake them up indoors in say peat moss pots and plant them outside when I’m ready, or can I just leave them in the plastic bags, or take them out and store them in a dark place? Thanks John

Sure! You can gently awaken them indoors by planting them in peat moss pots, ensuring they receive adequate light and water. Alternatively, if you prefer to wait, store them in their plastic bags in a cool, dark location until planting time arrives. Remember to gradually acclimate them to outdoor conditions before transplanting to minimize stress.
