Moving Houseplants Outside; Good Care of Hanging Baskets

Moving houseplants outside in late spring or early summer is good for them; they get better air circulation and light exposure. This also is a good time to repot your container-bound plants.

Wait to move plants outdoors until at least mid- to late-May, or when the weather is consistently warm. Since most houseplants have a tropical origin, temperatures below 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit might damage them.
