    Planters to last through the winter.

    I've got some vines to plant.. I need to container them.. What can I put them in (other than wood) that won't crack in the winter cold?

    There are containters which look like terra cotta which are just plastic - they look real, are much lighter and don't crack in the cold. They should be readily available in your area.

    Good luck!

    There are also fiberglass pots that are frost proof.* Many look like marble, stone or terra cotta as well.* These tend to be more expensive then other types of pots.

    All of my outdoor containers are ceramic and they winter very well. I absolutely agree that the drainage holes are KEY. Many, many nurseries will have awesome prices on their ceramic containers during the off season. I personally like the ceramic glazed and a few terra cotta ones. Never had a problem with these during the winter. Keep in mind that I'm in NC and the winters are not harsh here.

    Guys doesn't your location also matters.
    I used pots previously in extremely cold conditions and they stood fine and never worried me.

    If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
