Ask a Question
  • Do i need to plant this in the spring or can i plant it now, in late july?

    It can be planted anytime, but the hotter the climate the more frequently it will need to be watered.

  • My dogs sometimes pass through the area I want to plant several of these plants. Is this able to handle some animal traffic? Does it pose any risks to pets?

    They are pretty tough, but if stomped too often at a young age will suffer. Wintergreen is technically toxic to dogs and and cats, but most toxicity studies have been done on the distilled oils and not the leaves or berries themselves. Some sources say the effect would be mild if ingested, but that is speculative and your mileage may vary.

  • can i plant this in september

    Yes, if you give it enough water to offset the summer heat.
