Use of metal containers for plants over the winter
I just bought some beautiful mums and an aster yesterday. I was going to put them in large metal containers (rustic) for the fall. Severeal people have suggested lining them- which I totally understand. My question is this though. If I line them, keep them healthy and watered etc... Could I winter them in those containers? Someone had put on here that that would cause the metal to split? I do have the hardy mums- so like my others- plan on enjoying them for years to come. thank you.
