I've brought in my potted plants that were on my patio all summer. Gerber daisy, roses, rosemary and tomatoes. I put them in my garage. What should I do next? Will they get growing with special lighting?

Roses and rosemary are hardy outdoors in Eugene, so take them back outside and bury the pots in the soil to protect the roots from cold weather damage. Gerbera daisies will need to grow indoors over the winter months; they like warm temperatures and bright light. The tomato plants are annuals and won't do well indoors or in a garage (although they would love to live in a greenhouse all winter long). Harvest the fruits on the tomato plant and then toss it into the compost bin. Start with a healthy new plant next spring.

Best wishes with your garden!
