queen vic lobielia and campanula alba

durham, United Kingdom Gb

ive got two planters in my garden,both with a queen vic and a campanula alba in.Will they be ok over winter and come again next summer or do they have to be put in a cold frame?



I reckon to overwinter the lobelia under glass to protect it from the worst of the weather - more likely to see it again next year then

I leave mine until they go out again in the spring but I don't think it makes much difference

would my geraniums be ok in a cold frame over winter?,also ive put spring flowering bulbs in containers and placed them against the house wall under a table,do i need to water them at all?
