planters in the winter
I am thinking of planting the two empty wooden planter boxes for my friends/neighbors. It is my tiny gesture after they had a personal loss.
My question is, am I just setting the flowers up to die if I put perennials in a planter? I'm only going to put things in there that will survive the winter up here but if they are in a narrow planter--two feet high, three feet long and one foot wide--will they still survive the winter up here in Ned?
I was thinking either perennials or some small roses, but I'd hate for them not to come back next year.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
