Q.Wintering Fruit Trees

Zone 08501 | Anonymous added on October 6, 2023 | Answered

I have a pink varigated eureka lemon tree and a loquat tree. They are both in planters. When I got them I lived in Savannah, GA. So leaving them outside during the winter then wasn’t a big deal. Now I live in NJ about an hour from NYC. I know being in a planter as opposed to being in the ground can change things. Do I need to bring them inside for the winter?
