The Q&A Archives: What does overwinter mean?

Question: What does overwintering mean? And is it something I should do in Southern California Zone 10?

Answer: In southern California where it rarely freezes, you don't have to worry about taking tender plants indoors to overwinter. In colder regions when gardeners are growing frost-tender plants, they normally take them indoors to winter over.

Best wishes with your garden!
