i live in at north end of zone 7 on a north facing slope (almost zone 6 at least in terms of fall/spring soil temps.)

I have several dozen asparagus seedlings in 4" soil blocks in an unheated greenhouse. the plants are 10" tall. I am trying to figure out if I can set these out (mid-november) or leave them in the greenhouse and hope they go dormant for spring planting. I can put row cover over them if planted to minimize any shock they might get from temp change.

I have read that peruvian asparagus growers induce dormancy by cutting irrigation but letting seedlings dry out like that seems risky.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
