We have had a few warm nights with temps above 40*
This makes me chomp at the bit to start putting my plants in the deck containers.
I just have no patience.
Maybe next week.

Its the tropicals I use that worries me. I am due 2 shipments next week.Its a good thing or I would be out there too early again and then run in and out to cover things at night.
The coleus just die when its under 50* at night.

We are now getting night time lows in the 40's. I agree, time to start planting the containers. Hurray!

We should be okay now, maybe a light frost, I can just cover the planter for the nights that might happen. Smiling

You do have a great climate there in Oregon. We get unexpected frosts mid month.

We do here also, but usually not heavy frost or freeze.

I saw some amazing coleus while at a nursery in the Denver, CO area. I need to get them cropped and add them to the database. Hurray!

We are already hitting 90's during the day so container planting time is in full swing already. But then again, too hot for new transplants..luckily I am transplanting succulents.

I am drooling over that photo Jo Ann.
It appears to be one of the Kalanchoe 'Flap Jack' plants. I have one and love it. It think there is more than one variety of them though.

I was on the other site and saw something called Paul Buneon,the edges of the leaves have growths that look like ribbon.

Thanks for the id. Lynn
