Planting Outdoors in October and November


sheila51 added on September 8, 2016 | Answered

I have several spaces at the back of my beds and would like to plant out some shrubs which would eventually grow to a height of 6-8 ft. I would prefer something with color and possibly fragrant too. What would withstand the winter?
