Can I plant Hydrangea even if it's cold but not freezing?

There potted in full bloom will I lose the flowers?

    Hi Donna: I'd leave them in the pot as the shock of transplanting may cause them to lose their flowers. A bit of patience is in line here:) Wait until the ground is warm before transplanting, around Mother's Day. Then, put some fertilizer for that type of plant into the ground. Rough up the bottom and sides of the hole so that the roots won't have to fight to get into the ground. Make the hole almost twice the size of the root ball and maybe some planting soil would do wonders. Good luck

    NO...yes you will loose the blooms and maybe the whole plant. Old gardening rule"do not plant til after Mothers Day". Any plant(s) need acclimated to new surroundings--that means introduced slowly.
