A little work now can reduce the amount of money you spend on plants next year.
Tender annuals like geraniums, begonias, impatiens, plectranthus and coleus can easily be overwintered in the house. If you’re a fan of these or other annual plants, here are some tips on how to save them.
Pot them up and bring them in
If you have your favorites in a pot, bring them inside to a sunny window. If the annuals you love are in the ground, consider digging them up and planting in containers of fresh potting soil. Cut plants back by about a third and place the pots in a sunny location. Be sure you are saving the healthiest plants and look them over closely for any disease problems or insects.
