Planting dormant bare root astilbes

Zone 14072 | Karen Krawczyk added on March 21, 2018 | Answered

I have some dormant bare root astibles and I live in Grand Island NY. The ground is frozen and I am unable to plant them now. Should I plant them in pots with soil and transplant when the ground is ready or keep them in the garage. Any suggestions?

Yes, keeping them in container in a south facing window, or under horticultural lighting can help you give them a headstart before you plant them.
