Hi! I hope a more experienced container gardener can help me keep my garden healthy through a Northern VA winter. In May I planted a wonderful container garden on my rooftop terrace. I have evergreen shrubs, tall grasses, weigela, salvia, dwarf grasses and a few annuals.
I don't know how to care for the plants during winter. I love the tall grass! It's almost 5 feet high and is beautiful. The weigela is training nicely along a trellice. The evergreens are also doing well. I have a built in watering system, so it's very low maintenance.
Does anyone have suggestions for what to do with the plants during winter? Do I cover them? Prune them back? Bringing them inside is not an option...I don't have much room!
Any suggestions are very much appreciated!
