Back Outside

April 11th, 2018

It never fails that I end up with a few plants that are still in pots when winter rolls around. Sometimes, I overwinter them in the garage, most often, they spend the long winter in the basement.

This time of year, I start moving them outside. Last week, the boxwood and yew plants went out. In a few weeks, the hydrangeas in pots, wisteria, and other potted trees will go out as well. It’s an easy to overwinter plants that didn’t get planted. Sometimes, I even buy fall plants on clearance and overwinter them to plant in spring.

Do you ever end up with plants in the fall that you didn’t get around to planting? How to do deal with them for the winter?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
