My containers go into our unheated garage. I put a little snow on
the containers once a month for moisture. Nothing else.

I've had a lot of good results both
growing and overwintering in containers.
How do you protect the plants in the winter? I have overwintered
containered hostas with only mixed success. Method used was to lie pots
at about a 45 degree angle with the ground (patio) and cover with hay or
straw. What is the best method? Do you or does anyone else put the pots
in an unheated shed (garage)?
