Question: 645-4511
I have a hanging plant that I have been covering at night. It has tender stems and blooms constantly with daisy like flowers. Some of the branches were broken off by the storm, Irene. What can I do with it as winter approaches. Darlene, Jewett City, CT

Mort's Answer:
I would bring it indoors and treat it like a house plant. You will need less water indoor. Cut off the broken branches back to the next stem. You can add a light application of liquid fertilizer until the plant gets new growth. You probably have an annual that may make it to spring or beyond.
