How to Cover Plants During Winter Season?

schwindenhammer added on October 24, 2012 | Answered

I purchased some summer blooming shasta daisies and planted them Oct 25 this year. Since they are not rooted in, can I cover them with a plastic pot to protect them from too hard of a winter or will this work as a disadvantage?

Actually, you should leave them be. The plants will naturally die back and go dormant for winter. You can, however, add a layer of mulch or leaves around the plant to help provide additional winter protection for the roots.
