Q.I’m In Zone 5-6 And Want My Creeping Jenny To Come Back Next Year, It Never Does.
I have the creeping Jenny in outdoor urns. I want to plant it there again next year. How do I get it to come back – plant it in the ground and mulch it or put it indoors in containers?

Creeping Jenny is hardy to zone 3, so it should come back. Since it doesn't you could try one of these ideas;
You can wrap the containers in bubble wrap or burlap and mulch over the top after it dies back with the first freeze. (Remove the mulch in spring when it starts to come back.)
You can take cuttings and bring them inside for the winter.
If the urns aren't too large, you can move them to a protected area outside to help them overwinter, or move them to the garage. Water sparingly during the winter.
