Heeled In Plants (aka what to do when it's still cold outside)

Was your plant appetite bigger than your time available for planting? Dig a shallow trench in your garden or bare soil, take the plants out of the bags, lay the roots in the trench, cover the roots well with soil, and use your heel or palms to tamp down the soil over the roots. Keep them moist and they'll hold until you're ready to plant. 

If you have live stakes, you can simply put them in a 5-gallon bucket full of water.

Below is our standard planting video of what to do in general. :-)

If you have any questions, you can ask us at the Plant Sale - Sunday, February 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or - via email at scdplantsale@snohomishcd.org.
