Answer: Ideally, planting them would be the best, even if you end up needing to transplant them next spring. Another option would be to keep them in a sheltered location such as an unheated polyhouse just as a nursery might do. At home, you can try placing them in a spot sheltered from the wind and heaping a generous amount of shredded bark mulch around and over the pots. Do this well after freezing weather so that rodents have already found other homes, or they may nest in the mulch and feed on the plants. Finally, make sure the potting mix is kept moist until it freezes. Good luck with the plants!
