|I have a well established yard with Hydrangea, Rose of Sharon, Peonies, Hostas, an various bulb type plants. At some point my town will be putting a drainage system through my yard. I'm wondering if there is anyway to save any of these plants. They would have to be out of the ground for a year or more. I have no extra yard to replant these plants temporarily. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have a feeling I'll be giving plants away an starting from scratch. :-(|

|Hi Shawna and welcome to NGA!
They all would probably do very well in large pots. If the hydrangea is really huge with a very large root ball that won't fit in a pot you can dig it up and cut in into halves or quarters and pot them up. If you don't have access to large pots you can use buckets or large trash cans and drill holes in the bottom. Being perennials, come winter just store them in your garage.
