when to plant astibles arrived too early
I received 12 astibles from a grower and its still 30 out and I didn't know when to plant. I wet them down and covered with wet newspaper. What do I do now? I am in northern Ohio and usually do not plant till end of April.

I would go ahead and plant them in containers. Keep them here until it remains above freezing outside. This will give them a head start before the growing season. Here is a collection of articles on astilbe that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/astilbe/
