Ok here is my questions - A gentle man in town has many red hibiscuis seedlings in jiffypots for sale. They are about 4 to 6 inches tall and 3 dollars apeice. I need to know if I purchse these now and plant them outside will they winter ok? I really want some hibiscuis and Hollyhock. I have seeds to plant I am getting ready to go prepair that area now and get them in the ground. I was just curious about these seedlings. His yard is beautiful with the plants I so want them and just cannot wait to have them. I just dont know what I would do with all these questions if I had not found you all! You folks and this forum is such a blessing!

It doesn't matter where you go in life... It's who you have beside you when you get there.

I think they would do fine, Karrie. But please wait for more responses. I started one this spring. I've been growing it in a pot on my deck. I'm waiting for the weather to cool a bit before I pop it in the ground, it is about a foot tall.

Well, I don't know the environment of Indiana, of course. Probably better for that than Toronto would be.

If they were my plants, I'd cut them back and put them on a windowsill for the winter. I doubt very much they'd winter here.

Maybe you could leave one outside and bring the rest inside.

I do wish we could get them at 3 bucks and that small - I'd like to grow one from scratch.

I put some seeds into the scrub pot last week - wish me luck.

When sorting seeds, do not whistle.
