|I'm a beginner. Can you plant a perennial in a pot and will it come up each year?

|The problem with planting in containers is that the roots of your perennials can freeze solid during the winter months unless you protect them by burying the pot in the ground or wrapping bubble wrap or a garden insulation blanket around the outside of the pot to keep the roots from freezing. If you can't do this, you might want to just plant annuals with the expectation that you'll have to replant every spring.
