What do you put in outdoor pots for winter?
If you’re trying to keep your home beautiful by preserving your plants from getting damaged by the relentless winter, here are a few steps to take:
- Remove the soil, dead plants and flowers.
- Protect your terracotta pots by storing them in a dry and sheltered area.
- Protect glazed pots. These pots may not have been glazed all the way through and have a tendency to crack when exposed to moisture so keep them sheltered.
- Protect interior and exterior glazed pots. If your pots aren’t empty, avoid watering them as the moisture can freeze and cause it to crack.
- Consider your pot material. Make sure that pots you leave outdoors are made for the cold. Styrofoam, wood and plastic pots would do fine outdoors.
- Protect pots left outdoors. Make sure you wrap fragile pots with bubble wrap, cover them with leaves then move them to a warmer area.
- Store pots in the garage or crawl space if you can. These’ll make sure your pots are safe from the stresses of the extreme cold.
What do you put in a winter planter?

Do you water Christmas planters?
The general suggestion is that you should water them once a week and keep them moist. But ultimately, it would depend on the plants in your planters.
