Consolidated Containers


For the first time ever- I have gathered up almost all of my containers so I could set my hose timer to water them by sprinkler every two days as we were on holiday (Bulgaria) and I’m now thinking to leave them where they stand for the winter -except for those that don’t like winter outside. These will stand in the garage….I just thought I would share that and maybe receive some comment with regard to plusses or minuses with that….

My thinking is usually no natural light in a garage so what do you intend to over winter in the dark? Are the outside pots frost proof?

I have a south facing window in the garage- and most containers are plastic.... I will upload a pic mid-week....
although my sprinkler is embarassingly cheap!

Maybe you should make sure the pots you're leaving outside are frost-proof. They can be expensive to replace if lots get cracked. Also remember plastic pots don't give so much protection to roots as do stone/china pots.

Terratoonie - I have a pair of wellies somewhere in the garage which my daughter purchased to visit 'T' in-the-Park.
- In her great wisdom she she decided to spray paint them with 'Hammerite' black METAL paint!!!.....That was about a year ago - I don't think they are dry yet!!!!! haaaaaahaaaa!
