I have i few good size plumerias, one about 6 ft. I dont have room to have indoors so was wanting to possibly grow in the garage. Any tips on how i could accomplish this.

Hello Klilly, during late Fall, when it is time for my plumies to hide indoors, I just allow them to go dormant while in our garage. No watering, just let them dry. Removing the leaves as it dries off during the rest of the winter season, so they eventually becomes bare stems.

I just wait patiently for mid Spring when it is safe again to bring out my Plumies, then they will resume their active growing as the outdoor temps warms up again.

I had a potted Plumeria is Zone 8. It spent summers out under the Oaks and winters in the unheated barn.
