In the garage??!

Lisa, you and I are in the same 'zone' but I'm afraid to leave my 'really' tropicals outside. I've been lugging my plumeria, bird of paradise and succulents in every winter. WELL....there is a house here in town that has a bed FULL of bird of paradise (blooming, mind you....mine never have!) in their front yard. Needless to say, I've put mine in the ground. If they freeze and die, I think I'll have to go tell them it's ALL THEIR FAULT! LOL

Still going to baby that plumeria....it's the only one I've got.

You guys don't know how lucky you are.I have to pull all my tropicals in the house in late august to spend the winter in front of one of my sliding glass doors in the living room or under the skylights up stairs.Most of them do O.K. but by may they look pretty raggetty.I figure the more tropicals I have ,the more crowded the livingroom will be ,and eventually my husband will get sick of all the plants and build me a greenhouse.At least thats my plan.

The house is full o plants all the time!! Those that don't overwinter well as houseplants such as Brugs and bulbs go into a 'room' in the basement...rather cool...under fl. lights and near an east window. Aargghh!! Always wish, come about late November, that I didn't have to worry about it!
