Hi. Have a really small pond that I take all the water out before the cold winter hits in New Jersey. I have one marginal plant in it. It is in a pot. Can I over winter plant, pot and all in our vegetable garden ? Jim

If the plant is hardy to zone 6 you can plant the whole pot in your garden and dig it up next spring.

If the plant is not hardy, you can overwinter it indoors or in a garage where it does not freeze.
