planting a mountain laurel in Pa

Zone 18704 | Anonymous added on August 11, 2018 | Answered

do you plant mountain laurel in the fall or in the spring? Im in the state of Pennsylvania. I started the plant from a clipping of a mature bush. It has rooted and is ready but it is tiny. I will wait to plant it in the springtime if the winter will kill it.

You may be better wintering over in a sheltered garage or shed until spring.

If it is small you may need to insulate the container with some insulation. A small container may dry out, so check it throughout the winter. A small amount of moisture may be needed to keep the soil from drying completely.
