Clever Gardening Technique

Pots on Wheels
The thought of lugging heavy pots around may dissuade you from protecting them if frost is predicted! Save your back and legs by setting containers on wheeled plant caddies. This makes it easy to move them into protected areas, such as beneath roof overhangs or tree canopies. Even wheeling them to the front door makes it much easier to lift them inside if they are especially cold-tender. In summer, plant caddies also make it easier to move containers into shadier spots as required.
