The "not hardy" winter pot garden
Updated: 5 days ago
Here in Puget Sound we have ordinary days with temperatures in the 40's and high 30's and occasional tender-plant-destroying arctic blasts with lows in the teens. Those are really the only reason our official zones are in the 7 to 8 range.
But..... these low temperatures rarely last for more than a week, often less. Pots of florist's cyclamen and baskets of fuchsias that live on a porch can be tucked indoors for the duration. Bright light is best, but even a dark basement is fine.
A San Francisco garden on a Seattle porch? Why not?
