I have a pretty simply question that might not have a simply answer. Until I'm a home owner I'm attempting to grow a few plants in pots on my patio. The pots are all large. About 1 1/2 feet deep and a foot wide (give or take an inch). I have a stonecrop sedum (autumn fire variety) and a Serbian bellflower in another growing.
Currently they are both doing wonderfully. But it's almost September. And although these plants are both perennials and are natives to the zone I live in they are in containers.
So the question to you is this...will their roots survive in the harsh Ohio winter? Or should I do something else? Id rather not bring the pots inside and have nowhere else to store them since we live in an apartment.
Are there methods to keeping perennials alive over a long winter for next year? Or should I move them into the apartment?
Any tips or advice anyone has on perennials in containers I would appreciate so much.
Thanks in advance guys!!
