Overwintering Potted Plants

Zone 5-6 | Lucky lynda added on October 16, 2012 | Answered

Late potted plant purchases; can they be left in pots for winter,  inside or outdoors? I usually "plant" them in a sheltered outdoor location but am curious about leaving them in original nursery pots.

    That would depend on what type of plants you have. Some plants like the cold weather, while others need to be protected from the cold winter weather. If you have a wisteria, then by all means, plant it outside; the same goes for pampas grass, touch me not, and poppy.
