I just purchased Sunny Delight Boxleaf Euonymus, Silver Princess Boxleaf Euonymus and Cream De Mint Dwarf Mock Orange Plants. Can I planted them now or do I have to wait until fall?

Sharon,

Plant them now but take care to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Oversaturated soil or dry soil are both deadly in the heat. With good care you can successfully plant those shrubs and get a head start on fall. Firm the soil around the root ball when you plant them and water them in well to settle the soil to remove air pockets.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
