The Q&A Archives: Temperature and bare root planting

Question: I am interested in ordering vinca minor in bare root form. I'm in zone 5 and it wouldn't be planted until 10/26. Is there a risk of failure?

Answer: It's a little late in the season to be planting bare root vinca. I'd wait until the soil warms up in spring before planting.

Enjoy your garden!
