My wife has 2 Lantanas growing in containers. She would love to save them, if possible, for next summer. Can do? I've heard that it's possible; But I'm unfamiliar with the technique.
Thanks for any advice,
RBB

Potted Lantanas aren't usually reliably hardy outdoors in your zone. Are you able to bring them indoors for the winter? If so, an east or west-facing window in a cool room away from heat sources/drafts is good. Water very sparingly so the soil does not dry out completely. Don't fertilize.
