I have Lily of the Nile, Chiffon Cloud, and Confederate Jasmine in containers on my porch. I live in Pittsburgh, Pa. What do I need to do to winter them so they will return next spring?

Your tender plants will need to be wintered over indoors. Gradually take them inside overnight when the nighttime temperatures reach about 55F and take them outside during the day. Each day keep them inside a little longer than the day before. In a week or 10 days they should be acclimated to growing indoors 24 hours a day.
