    Fall is the best time to plant perennials, but since winter is already here in NEPA, plant them in the early spring. Keep them in a cool dark place like a basement or garage until you plant them (not in a plastic bag). They may take longer to sprout in spring, but you should be able to salvage them.

    If you live in a colder climate, plant them in the spring after the last danger of frost has passed.

    If you live in a warmer climate, plant them in early spring or late autumn.

    If you plant them in July through September in conditions of heat and high humidity, they stand a good chance of rotting.
