Well, I hate to say it but it is definitely time to bring in your plants from outside. There are two kinds of potted plants – outdoor and indoor.

For the outdoor pots, you need to determine if your plant will come back like grasses. All you need to do is cut them back, move them into your garage or shed. Ideally, cover them with straw, mulch or moss.

For the indoor pots, I usually use the fall as a time to repot the plants, fertilize and let them add some O2 to the house for the winter. Especially Jade plants seem to like this attention and then preferred to be ignored. If your Jade is sprouting long tendrils, put those in small vases and let them find root that you can plant in the spring.

So, breathe deep and enjoy your plants this winter!
