The great news is there are many plants that can be grown indoors and outdoors. Outdoor plants that do well in shade, and don’t need to go into dormant during winter will do better indoors compared to plants that prefer full sun.
Usually tropical plants that are not frost hardy will either need to be brought indoors throughout the winter months. Tropical perennial bulbs should be lifted and packed away in a dry place to protect them from the frost. But can also be brought in before the end of the flowering season to prolong growth. Seedlings and cuttings should be brought indoors and protected from cold weather and frost, as this could kill young plants that are not well established.
If a plant should be protected from the frost but is not able to be brought indoors, we suggest adding a thick layer of mulch to the base of the plant to protect the roots, and cover the plant with a frost protective fleece, until the frost has passed.
