  • That really depends upon the type of plants they are. Some will do well outside till next season while others may need to be brought in to keep them from being harmed by winter's frost.

  • I cover my herbs with leaves and debris form the yard once it gets t cold. I only have perennials.

  • In Miami, we normally do not have much of a winter just what I call air conditioned weather.

  • Annuals - I let them get frozen - otherwise everything I have picked for my yard is able to survive in my climate zone.

  • Most of mine do well on the sunny patio room out of the wind. When it frosts, I cover the rest with clear plastic. I have had jalepeno plants for two years out side, in Texas. And some flowers too.
