Default Re: Basjoo update after terrible winter

Last year, I was able to uncover my in-ground basjoos, and bring out the indoor ones on April 5. I had rigged a string of mini Christmas lights, under the cover, but sometime in March, a bulb blew out, taking the whole string out. The plants were still OK.
This year, I never got to rig the lights and, after a brutal winter, I was unable to uncover until mid May, but the plants were fine, and are growing well now. Go figure!
