Thank you for the tip.

Temperatures goes down to -2 C in winters and rises up to 45 C in summers. Winters are good here but summer season come with lots of heat. These plants need special shade and care,so I always try to do the same in summers.

Paul
Thank you for the nice words.

Hi Kaleem, I agree with Paul, nice display. Are the pots you're using locally made? That's a very nice collection.

Yes, these are local made clay pots and available for 2USD each, very cheap if we compare the price with its size.

I forgot the name because its tag was misplaced. I think its white feather. You are also a Hostas lover and your guess may be correct.
