Hello fellow gardeners. I have a Weigela 'Minuet' (zones 4-8) still in a pot. Not certain yet where I want it planted permanently. It may replace a rose which I will not be certain is dead until spring. Should it be fine planted pot-and-all where I am soon removing my tomato plants? I'm in zone 6b.

Polly - yes, you can "sink" the potted plant in the ground for the winter.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb

Thank you! I was pretty certain I've read this before but I've never done it. Wanted to double check. Although I got a good end of season discount, I'd hate to lose it.

The ground insulates the roots inside of the pot.
