I own a small garden shop in Tannersville,N.Y. My question; In my small greenhouse(8x10), when should I start watering the perennials I did not sell last season? They're still in the original pots
and surrounded by mulch to keep warm. Thank you Robin Leach

If the plants have bare stems (such as dormant geraniums) you can start watering when new leaf buds begin to form. Usually light and temperature signals new spring growth so take your cues from your plants. New growth equals a need for watering. Good luck with your plants.
