With the Fall season settling in and chilly weather on the horizon, it is time to start moving your outdoor plants inside. Whether you are an avid gardener or not, making sure your plants thrive all year round is important.

The benefit of most perennials is that they can thrive in both indoor and outdoor environments when put into pots. Although plants can grow for years in potters but their size may be contained by the pot they are planted in. Outdoors, shrubs and perennials can grow naturally but in a pot, they do not have as much room to spread their roots, pun totally intended!

Before you start repotting your plants or moving furniture around to find the best areas to house your plants indoors, you’re probably wondering what plants will do best indoors. Here are some of the best perennials to plant in year-round containers:

  • Green Mountain’ boxwood – an indoor favourite, this shrub can be planted with other flowers
  • Bergenias – with large oval leaves, this plant flowers in the spring and remains green and glossy year-round
  • Fuldaglut sedum – this plant is a popular choice for those looking to add a pop of colour in the winter and can be planted almost anywhere
