Hello. I am interested in keeping my perennial lavender and sage plants alive during the winter, and I don't know where to begin. I need advice about when to start mulching them and how to go about doing it. Currently the lavender and the sage are growing in pots, and I live in zone 6a soil. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If your plants are in pots you'll want to either sink the pots into the garden so the soil will help insulate the roots or you can set them in a shallow box and pour mulch over the pots to help insulate them over the winter months. Keep the tops above the mulch level. Now would be a good time to do this. Good luck with your plants.
