Let me start at the beginning.
I live in Austin ,Texas where the winters are relatively mild.
A freeze rarely happens and if it does it lasts perhaps a day or so.
The questions are as follows:
I read somewhere that you should place your containers in the ground for winter. I have two issues w this.
a) I rent not own the place I live in. So I don't want to damage the property. Though I do have permission to do anything I want to the yard.
b) Is it possible that the roots will grow into the ground over the winter and cause damage to the plants
when I pull them out for spring
c) Can or should I even wrap in w some kind of bubble wrap or burlap for the winter?
These are the plants
I have. Hibiscus,sage,geraniums and cacti. Oh yes and a christhum (sp). I have some herbs that I am planning on bringing in for the winter.
Thank you for your help.
