Transplanting bushes and daylillies in pots - Knowledgebase Question

When is the earliest in the fall that I can transplant a few
small spirea bushes? They are about 3 ' by 3'.

I would like to put some mini daylillies in a big pot outside. Will they be OK in the pot OUTSIDE all winter?

3. Also, I have some Foxy Delphinium seeds coming up.. they are about 1 inch tall. They are in a half day of sun. Should they be in full sun?

Thanks a bunch... Dorian

Your delphiniums should be fine in a half day of sunshine. Daylilies may not survive in containers over the winter months because their roots will be exposed to extreme cold. You may need to bury the pots in the ground to protect the roots of the plants. You can transplant your spireas in late August or early September. Enjoy your garden.
