Chances are, some tropical and perennial plants are too tender to last the winter outside in your climate. This requires letting them come in for the winter months, but they need more specific care than that. You don’t need a greenhouse or any special equipment to overwinter these tender plants, but you do need to know how to give them the best chance at thriving. Here’s how.
1. Take Advantage of Sunny Windows
The easiest way to provide for the needs of your tender perennials is to place them in a bright, warm, sunny window. Put them on the window sill or right next to the window where they’ll get plenty of light. If you haven’t overwintered a particular plant before, you might want to give it the priority location until you know more about what it can handle. Use an east, west, or south-facing window.
