Q.Any advice on overwintering boxwoods in terra cotta pots

Zone 12204 | albany6 added on September 12, 2018 | Answered

Do I wrap the pots in something? I live in upstate NY, so we have hard winters here and I normally bring in my pots, but with the shrubs in them, they are fairly large and I’m not sure how to protect the pots. Any advice?

Most cultivars are fully hardy in your area, even in container. If you just want to make sure that you have added protection, then burlap or any cloth wrapped around the container on the coldest nights. Otherwise, there will not be too much protection needed to keep these happy.
