Q.when to plant
There have been several delays in getting my plants in the ground. Is it too late. The ground is not frozen and there will be about 4 days of 40+ degree weather in the next few days. I live in Dayton, Ohio, the date today is 12/17/2017. I have bulbs as well as root plants. Please help me save these plants !!
This depends on what the plants are, specifically. Some plants will rather wait until spring while others will prefer to be set out in the cold. Tulips and flowering garlic/onion are among the many that prefer a winter planting. If you can include some of the varieties, I will be more than happy to help you further.
