Now is a great time to dig up tender perennials, or annuals you’d like to keep indoors over the winter. Here are some of my favorite plants to bring inside: geraniums, scented geraniums, hibiscus, and small pepper plants.
I usually plant several containers in the spring or summer (when many annuals go on sale) with the idea of bringing them in when the weather gets chilly. You can plant small patio tomatoes, and many herbs in containers. Bring them in when the weather turns cold, and put them in front of a sunny window.
