Blue Fescue Still in Pots

foofyblue(z4 MN)December 12, 2004

Will they expire over winter?

They look great on the porch

but I fear the plants will not

survive winter.

Am wondering if I should place those

pots into a large container of soil

and hope for the best. Or would they

winter over in the basement?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank You

My inclination would not be to bring them indoors - like all perennials, they need dormancy time. Try any way that you can to insulate the root ball, either by placing them directly in the soil in your garden (you can do this pot and all) or in a large container of soil, as you have suggested. I have water iris in a pot on my patio during the summer in a big Chinese bowl, but when fall comes, I sink the whole pot in the ground, and next spring they are ready to go again!
