Hi, i live in Brampton Ontario. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it's possible to plant bulbs like Lillies and bleeding hearts, hostas etc...in pots and leave them outdoors over the winter?

If you dig the pots in the ground you can, otherwise most plants freeze and then rot. I have had some things survive overwinter in containers if they get a good layer of snow protection but our winters are milder than yours.
