Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon with Monrovia. Today, we're going to talk about winter storage for potted shrubs. Many of us, myself included have plants that live in containers and we need to move these indoors or get them off the patio for the winter. There's not a real rule of thumb when it comes to looking after potted plants during the winter time. So we're going to do it by region. If you're in the warmer parts of America and you've been using tropicals such as gardenias, bananas, or beautiful hibiscus, then as the winter months approach you'll ease back on the fertilizer, ease back on the watering and allow the plants to go in to a somewhat of a dormant state. If you're in the colder regions of America you're going to want to bring these plants indoors or certainly in to the garage. Stop fertilizing, back off the watering so they're just a little bit on the moist side, and very importantly, keep an eye out for bugs on them during the winter time. And if you find you have a problem, consult your local nurseryman and they'll give you great advice. We all want our plants next spring time. There's lots of things you can do to make sure that that plant is with you the following year for you and your family to enjoy.
