Hardening Off Perennials

Perennials should only be planted once temperatures are consistent (a couple weeks post freeze), or around the May-long weekend to be safe.

Here are a few tips to keep your perennials healthy until planting time.

•Keep your potted perennials in a bright window.

•Avoid overwatering; allow the top 2” of soil to dry thoroughly.

•Pinch new growth periodically to promote bushiness.

•Weather depending, perennials can safely be planted after all chance of frost is over, approximately the fourth week in May.

•Be sure to harden off your perennials by placing them outside during the day and bring them in again at night for at least one week starting the 2nd week in May.

•If after planting there is a risk of frost, simply run out and cover with a box of fabric. Do not use plastic.
