PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
We're moving to Montreal the end of the Month or beginning of December and we are taking along a 5' Bay Rum, 4 1/2' African Flame Tree, and 71/2' Washingtonia Palm. We're 50 and over so there's not going to be night driving. I don't want to freeze my plants. I intend to insultate them and have them set into a couple of pallets screwed together with holes sawed out to accommodate them. I'm also going to to put a tall box on top of them. Wasn't sure about air holes, probably not. Didn't know, but probably would even bring them into the hotel at night. Why not, what's 3 trees, when you've got 2 people, 2 cats and 2 dogs?
Does anyone know of a product that produces heat, like something you snap and it breaks a vial or something? I'm probably reaching too far here, I know. But out of all that I have to give up, I'm taking these plants with me!!
Thanks for any suggestions.
I know that's not a picture of any of the plants I'm talking about...it's one that I have to sell. Arabica Coffee. I've had it for about 3 years. Got it at the Broward County Rare Fruit & Vegetable Sale for about $40. I believe I still have the original tree tag. I got over three (3) pounds of coffee off of it this year that I roasted in the oven. Last year, only enough for a pot and a half. If it were in the ground...who knows. And it is still laden with red berries. And others ripening all the time. It's on Craig's List, Fort Lauderdale if anyone is interested. Can't guarantee how long it will last, though.
