I think this is the latest ever. nodding

Potted up ~ 25 plants and moved them to my greenhouse. I still have some microscopic size Cordyline that I moved out too. Will have to keep an eye on those!

LOL, David -- that makes me feel a little better; I have everything out of the indoor area, but still trying to get my GH cleaned out!!

nodding Thumbs up

I have ~ 200 plants in my GH. No - I have NO freaking idea what I will do with all! Heh. My wife looked at my Plumeria seedlings ~ 24 and asked what ARE you going to do with them? I have no clue. Fer sure, I will keep one of each variety so my collection will go from 3 to 9.

What is a real hoot? Only about 3 months til I will be moving stuff back to the basement grow area.

Serves a dual purpose - seed starting and a holding area for many of my tropical plane. E.G. brugmansia, Oleander.

A lot of the plants that I still have in the GH are perennials that I started from seed to plant the new "butterfly garden" that I've been trying to get around to for several years now... thought if I grew the plants the garden would materialize on its own Hilarious! . I guess I can always put them in some bigger pots and carry them through the winter that way!

Thumbs up Whistling

I start a lot of seed fairly late for the sole purpose of wintering over in my nursery area ~ 12 ' x 5 '

Why not set a plan and get some in the ground in Sep & Oct? WAIT I forgot - by Oct you have snow. Rolling on the floor laughing

Oh, ha ha...

They are predicting 'warmer than average' fall temps for us this year nodding

Hopefully I WILL be able to get at least some of them in the ground this fall... actually, I have some plants (in bigger pots) still sitting out in the veg garden that I started LAST year for this project Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Oh reeeeaaaallllyyyy.......I'll have to remember that one. I'll have 5 roses to find places for in a couple months, 2-3 blackberries and need to sort out my native bed to make sure my new natives will grow. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing I actually need to put those in bigger pots now but have been putting it off and it's showing.
