Kathleen you have such patience and care to keep these gorgeous plants going girl ! It must give you a great deal of satisfaction when yo see them coming back to life : )


They are going to be beautiful! They were last year, too. Now what shall you purchase with your savings! gail


That is wonderful that all those tender perennials & tropicals survived the winter in your basement. Thanks to your TLC of course. You are too clever!


You must have a very good spot to over winter them. I used to keep a few plants and even some roses in pots on my sun porch. Then the rescue cats took over the porch and promptly destroyed the plants. Even digging them up.

Perhaps next year I'll find the coolest spot in the basement and try again.


You have beautiful containers and did great holding them! I too overwintered the Cape Fuschia. It has been a problem but there is a bit of new growth:)


What a beautiful container! I just love the color combinations and how tropical it looks.

Kathleen, I think all ten of your fingers must be very green in order to have accomplished the overwintering of all those wonderful plants! I'm going to look for your e-mail address so I can write you with my snail mail address. Oh! I am so excited! ;-)

Shady Gardener

K, here I am again. If you go to my site, I have a "profile" that lists my e-mail address. Want to send me a note, first? Thanks!

You are having much better luck with overwintering than I am. The only thing alive so far is a boring orangey-red geranium. But then again, I don't even know if the items I tried to make go dormant would even work! We shall see.


Nice! Makes me wish we had a basement.
