So I bought jerusalem artichoke tubers in the spring but never got around to planting them. They've been in my fridge for a couple of months. Anyone know if they stay viable that long? I want to plant them either now or maybe I should wait til the fall? I need some advice thanks. Also I am in the same predicament for asparagus. Do you think they are still good? I kept them under the same conditions for the same amount of time.

Matt
by the way, I'm in zone 6b in NJ just south of Trenton.

I'd soak them a little and get them right in the ground asap..

OK thanks for the fast response! Is that for both the J. Artichokes and the asparagus?

I agree with Brenda, get them both in the ground, and maybe give them a little TLC in the way of making sure they stay moist (not soggy!) throughout the summer.

 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
