When do I plant out perennial seedlings?
Nova Scotia, Canada
My perennial seedlings (white iris and Lynchnis coronaria (campion)) are doing well. I planted them in April. Should I plant them out in the garden or keep them in their seedling pots until next year? We have harsh winters here in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Thanks for the speedy replies, Bamboo and Volunteer. I collected these seeds myself last year from established plants. Just wasn't sure what one does with perennial seedlings. I'll plant some and keep some going, then, and I'll know for next time which is more successful here.
Thanks Janey. In that case, I will probably plant them out in late summer - September-ish, and let them acclimatize before the winter sets in.
