I picked up some bulbs and sets at Home Depot, and I'm wondering when I
should actually plant them here in my Zone 9 garden? The Bleeding
Hearts are actually sprouting in the bag. Should I plant them right
away or wait until the frost-free date which is in late March? How
about the Calla Lilies and Clematis (the latter of which also shows
signs of sprouting in the bag)?
Pot everything up and place them in the best light you have available.
The Clematis can take more sun than the other two and also supply it
with something to climb on.
In Zone 9, you could probably plant the Bleeding Heart and the
Clematis in the garden now, but protect the tender shoots with a good
sized mound of leaves or pine straw. I would wait on the Calla Lily
though and just pot it up and grow it inside at a bright window.
