Well boyz and girlz... Kathyguest is here to tell you that you can accept
siberians in the fall and STILL plant them in the spring!  


By planting them in a pot for the duration.  Carol Warner does this as do many
other growers.  By planting the siberians in a pot, you can control the soil
and water very carefully... and you can mulch the plant - pot and all - when
the time comes.  If I remember correctly, Carol Warner stands her pots in a
child's wading pool until growth begins (this is also for ensata, BTW)... The
plants are easier to get 'kick started' in a pot than in the ground... and you
can still plant the following spring.

taa daaaa
