WINTER FOR CONTAINER PLANTS
In the death of plants in pots (not heat-loving perennials, but, for example, winter-hardy seedlings), if they are left in the garden, it is not so much frost that is to blame, but the rapid change in temperature from high to very low.
If it is possible to provide cover that will soften these "swings", there will be a much better chance of survival.
Until the leaves from the plants have fallen, it is too early to send them for the winter. But it is already cold at night, so the containers can be put together, for example, under the wall of the house and covered with agrofibre. Take it off during the day, and put it on again at night. Winter insulation can be started with the arrival of stable frosts (-5 degrees). There are several save options.
1. Plants in pots can be collected in a place protected from the north wind in the garden. Many people think that it is better to place them on the south side of the house, where they will receive a lot of winter sun, but this is not the right strategy.
In such conditions, green pets will thaw and freeze all winter, and this will destroy them. Choose a shady, windless corner for them, where temperature fluctuations will be mild. The goal is to ensure that the plants remain moderately frozen until spring arrives.
The chosen place should not be under a roof! Plants should go into winter watered and receive precipitation until spring.
Insulate containers with breathable insulating material. This will reduce temperature fluctuations and increase the chance that the perennials will survive the winter.
2. The second shelter option (especially useful if the container is very heavy, there is no way to move it) is to create a wire frame around the container and fill the voids with spruce branches, leaves or straw.
3. Wintering in a dark basement with minimal moisture in a clod of earth. Conifers can be moved to an unheated room with a lot of light.
