Just wanted to say hello, my JWP is been doing great. Still a newbie year, going on 5months now.

Tho its fall and as it gets colder, I wanted to ask your input on "winterizing" to prevent any damage from any

freezing temps that are just around the corner. Im in Zone 7A, right now the nights are in the high 40's/50's.

The pot my JWP is in measure 2"x 7" x 5".

...Should I put into a larger container like a 5 gallon bucket with a good drain soil mix and top with mulch up to the bottom branch???

Hello, I'm a new guy here also. I like your idea sounds good. It sounds like wind can be a big problem as well so keep it out of the breeze And you would be good.

JWP are hardy down to zone 5 easily. You shouldn't need to do anything to winterize it in 7A. Just watch soil moisture and water when necessary. Don't let the needles get bright sun if the soil is frozen; which could happen if you mulched it in and left it in sun.
