This winter started innocently enough but now, mid February , it is brutally cold. Lows in the negative numbers and highs hardly making it in to the teens most days. The only cure for this is dreaming of the spring ephemerals that will be ready to pop out of the ground like magic at the first opportunity come spring.
The very best time to plant is in the fall, but as it is too late for that, the next best is EARLY spring, as soon as the ground thaws. We will send them to you while they are still dormant and if you plant them right away you do not have to worry about late frost because they will be under ground. If you can’t plant right away you can keep them in the original packing in a very cool area, like your garage or the refrigerator till you are ready.
