Q.Bee balm winter storage

Zone Northeastern PA | Anonymous added on October 17, 2016 | Answered

I planted bee balm in small containers this spring. They flowered. I know I should cut them back in late fall, but should I bring them indoors for the winter? We get to below freezing in the winter.

Bee Balm is winter hardy in your growing zone and the plants can be cut back and allowed to go dormant.
Leave the pots in a sheltered location. A garage works well.
You can bring the pots back outdoors in the spring after danger of frost has passed.


Bee Balm is quite fast growing and your plants may outgrow the pots and need repotting or will do well planted in the ground.
