Q.Winter Survival For Outdoor Potted Perennials
Hello – I have several potted perennials that I’m hoping to keep through the long Minnesota winter; is there any way I can help them survive outdoors? I would bring them inside, but my cat would definitely eat them (some of the plants are toxic to pets). I’d appreciate any advice I can get. Thank you!
