Forgotten Perennial Seeds! - Knowledgebase Question

Windsor, Co
Question by run2Thewoods

I have several packets of perennial seeds that I failed to get into the ground early this year. Does it make sense to plant them now, either outdoors or inside in peat pots, or should I just save them for next year? I also have a couple of dry root rasberry plants and several strawberry starts, that I forgot as well. What should I do?
Thank you!

I'd plant them all now. The raspberry and strawberry plants won't live another season out of the ground and the perennial seeds will still have an opportunity to grow and develop a good root system prior to winter setting in. Plant them outdoors in a prepared bed and they'll be fine.

Best wishes with your garden!
