Winter Potted Gardens

You can still plant flowers in pots for the winter. Try to do it when the temperatures for the week will be in the upper 70's through 80's. Shop for the best selections at our local nurseries.

  • Plant successive plantings of garden vegetables. As leafy and root vegetables are harvested, replace them with new seedlings of radish, lettuce, spinach, chard, and other fast-maturing winter vegetables.
  • Protect young seedlings from cutworms by placing a ring, cut from a paper or Styrofoam cup, around the transplant at the soil line to block the cutworm and protect the stem.
  • Snip Petunias to encourage them to branch and spread. Cut the ends off of stems to encourage side branching. This will promote abundant flowering and more compact plants.
  • Remove the old blooms from Geranium, Cyclamen, Calendula and other winter flowers as they fade by cutting them off with sharp scissors or hand pruners. This will also increase flower production.
  • Use a bi-weekly spray application of a water soluble fertilizer on all flowering plants to encourage growth and a continual show of flowers.
