RE: overwintering perennials

What are the perennials in? What kinds of perennials? How big are they? If you have 2 uncovered unheated greenhouses, you basically have nothing at all.

RE: overwintering perennials

I am new at gardening, just finishing my 1st yr and and wondering if I bring in all my pots to the garage ,will they survive. I have dalias, coleus,gerber daisies,snapdragons,geraniums,wandering jew,salvia,day lillies,impatients, and chinese lanterns.I can get a small heater for garage if I need to. I have about 50 pots of various sizes 4qt-100qt.Any advice will be appreciated.
