planting with pots ?

jerome69(6)April 17, 2011

has anyone planted flowers with their pots into the ground for the entire season? i was thinking of trying this to prevent damage from the winter and critters. i would remove them and store inside for the winter.

I haven't done it myself but I know a lot of people who do.

There are threads about planting hostas in pots in the Hosta forum. It is important to prevent water on top of the roots / crowns during winter, or they will rot. Therefore, pots with hostas are placed on their side in a shady spot over winter, if you want to keep them outside. Some perennials, such as hostas need to be very cold over winter, therefore keeping them in the house is not an option, but a cold garage would be OK.
