    I would plant them in mid April, when the soil has begun to warm up image

  • Be sure to plant them at the right depth, or you will be forever picking the stems up from the floor! image

    Also plant them in a big bed of sand (about 6 inches deep) or they will get chewed.

    I leave mine in the ground. I added made sure the soil is free draining and it is in a raised bed, so the soil warms up quickly in spring.

  • Planting should never start until deciduous trees in the locality are well into leaf.

  • many thanks for replys , so helpful this forum
