    I have a couple rhodendrons and an azalea, which I am eager to plant. Is it too soon?
    I am in New Westminster, BC.
    I know they are pretty tough, and they will be planted on the north west side of my house where they will be quite sheltered from the winter sun.
    My other rhododendrons already have buds on them.
    Thanks for any help.

    If hardy varieties can go out. Better protected from cold in ground than in pots anyway, unless pots are being protected.

    Thank you,
    They are pretty hardy, and I am eager to plant them.
    Seems like a good day for it too.
    Regards.
