As the first day of winter has officially arrived, annuals have been put away for the year. Let's talk about how you treat these tender plants in your garden.

I start new annuals almost every year.
I have over wintered a few some years.
Up here the winter is too long to over winter many plants indoors.

I try to over winter but it is hard with the long cold winters of Zone 3B. I do advocate seed saving when ever it is possible. The one plant I would like to overwinter is Rosemary but I find it difficult.

Welcome! Welcome! to ATP Pam!!!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
