We're in zone 6a (SW Ohio). After some extensive yard work, I have a few
pots open for plantings and will soon have a small bed (6' x 1.5') as well.
I hate to let them all sit vacant all autumn and winter long, especially
since things don't typically get TOO nasty until late December to early
Any suggestions on some plants I can put in these containers and such that
might do well? The containers are concrete so they'll grab the heat of the
day to keep roots warm through the night and with leaves falling from the
trees they all get a fair amount of sunlight as well. I also have some
strawberry pots (terra cotta, "holes" in the sides) I was thinking of
putting something in as well.
Just wanted to add a little variety, maybe a splash of color -- hate to have
these just sitting empty! :)
