Q.Hoe Do I Save My Astilbes?
I ordered astilbes bulbs The included planting guide says to plant ASAP. It also says not to plant until the average temp is 60 and the low temp 40. The problem is the high temp has not gotten higher than 49 and the low is not expected to be above freezing for at least a week.what should I do? Thank you, Debbie Bittner

You can plant them in a pot big enough to accommodate them with potting soil and let them get started indoors. Then after all danger of frost has passed, you can transfer them outdoors.
