When do I plant my hydrangea cuttings?

15 years ago

Thanks in advance for your opinions!

So, I have successfully propagated around 10 hydrangea cuttings. They are in 1 gallon pots, all are putting on new growth (much more of a plant now vs. a stem cutting) so I'm assuming they have a decent root system.

So now what? Do I:

a) Plant them in the ground now, giving them a few months to grow before the winter frost?

b) Plant them in the ground when they are dormant to avoid any transplant shock?

c) Wait, put them in my garage for the winter when dormant, and plant in spring?

d) None of the above

I would HATE to lose these plants as this is my first attempt at cuttings and so far so good!
