Glazed and Terra Cotta Pottery

Terra cotta and earthenware are naturally slightly porous to allow plants inside of them to breathe.  So, even though our glazed and terra cotta pottery is subjected to stringent testing in freeze and thaw conditions, damage can still occur in freezing temperatures. If there is any water left in the pots, it can expand and cause the pot to crack. The glazed and terra cotta pots are frost-resistant but there is still the concern that the freeze and thaw cycle will occur.  It is important to either bring them indoors during the winter or to follow the winter care instructions for the fountains and planters above.
