Moving Day


It is moving day in the Automatic Garden.  The tender tropicals spend the winter in the garage.  Usually, they come back outside as early as mid-February, but this year was much colder.  The Amyarillas were stored in the garage and deprived of water to encourage blooming.


These are two of the four Tropical Hibiscus that spent winter inside.  They are feeling a little peaked from low light.


The Coleus wintered over for the second year.  The houseplants that love the Gulf heat and humidity will need some work to get them looking good, but they always come back.  These are just a few of the plants being moved.

  1. Love your wagon! Wish we still had one, too!

    It’s always feels so good to get plants back into the garden each spring. I over-wintered a geranium–and recently broke off some stems to start new parts for this year.
