Why care for your plant pots?
You probably think about protecting your plants from winter frosts, but what about your plant pots? If you live in an area that doesn’t drop below freezing, you don’t have to worry but if you live in a cold area, some of your outdoor containers may not survive the winter. Some will be fine, but many materials absorb water, which freezes and expands, and then the container becomes brittle and cracks. Replacing them can be expensive, especially if you have to do it year after year. Here are some pointers to help protect your pots and save money.
