Gardener To Gardener

How to easily overwinter outdoor plants in confined space is a challenge to many gardeners who have favorite plants they want to keep another year.

Lois Quatier of Yankton has a technique for overwintering a small portion of a larger plant that she describes in the link below. She has tried the method on annuals and woody perennials. Results vary so she makes several cuttings of each type of plant she tries.

Her friend Evelyn Schindler gave her coleus cuttings that she kept under artificial light in winter and then planted in the plant container below. Find out her simple steps to accomplish this below.
