Clay pots last a long time when the garden containers are prepared for winter by emptying the soil keeping them dry for when deep frost arrives.

Plants that bloom in the fall and continue to bloom into the first weeks of November such as ‘Arendsii’ monkshood are definitely an asset.

There are bargains to be found at garden centres! Shopping the late-season sales is one way to find good shrubs and perennials at discounted prices.
