Do you have a plant in the yard that is just beautiful but will die when the frost and snow come? I have 2 Pentas plant, Google it, they are pretty! Hummingbirds love them.
Last fall, I dug them out, went to the Goodwill and bought 2 large containers, drilled drainage holes and put a big saucer underneath. I used a grow light all winter. They bloomed all winter!
In the spring, I just took the containers outside, the plants stayed in bloom all season, and grew! Now when fall comes, I just need to transport them back into the house. Now I have no broken heart over them dying, and saved $ from not replacing!
