Ginseng

I dont blame you, that is a beautiful planter, and all those plants should carry over the winter.

I don't blame you either Ginseng. It still looks very nice, and it would be a shame to destroy it. Hopefully it will overwinter in your sunroom ok, and you can enjoy it inside for now and move it out again next spring. I'm also curious about the silver 'globes' on the stakes that are in the container. Are those solar lights, or another type of watering stake? Whichever they are, I really like them.

They are just decorative silver balls on a metal stake!

the tall brown spikes are "formiums" and the clover type trailing plant is a form of oxycallis.

Can't blame you for wanting to keep that container going, Ginseng. Makes me think of starting a container next spring that will do well in the following winter. The oxalis is a perfect plant for this.

Ginseng

The only advice I can pass to you for this planter is to keep the Phormium facing the window. This will provide needed shade for both the Hedera and the oxalis. They both like a moist soil and the phormium isnt fussy as it can be kept moist or on the dryer side

Nice looking container Remi, I brought one like that in last year and it did well over the winter. The biggest problem was the fungus gnats!
