Convenient Method To Overwinter Annuals

In the fall, I have always brought in cuttings from my annuals to overwinter and to have ready for my window boxes and pots for spring. I would grow them in 4-inch plastic pots on my windowsills covered with tin foil, which created a mess, and if I wanted to move them to another location, it took quite a while to move all of the separate pots.

Using the wallpaper containers worked wonderfully last winter. Attached are this summer's photos of the annuals that I took cuttings of last fall. It worked so well that this fall I've doubled the number of cuttings and brought in whole plants in 8" pots that also fit in the containers.
