VALERIE’S VIEW from the Greenhouse!

BRING THE OUTDOORS IN!  

As our temperatures begin to drop, many of our customers start asking what blooming plants can be brought indoors for the winter.  The standard answer is almost always Geraniums.  But, there are others that do well, such as Impatiens and Begonias.

You can bring in an existing pot or dig the plant out of the garden.  Make sure the pot it is going into is large enough to accommodate an ever growing plant.  Place your plants in a sunny location away from drafts.  I suggest fertilizing the plant once a month with a half strength fertilizer.  Be careful not to over water as the plant will not be taking up moisture as quickly as it did in the garden.  Do not let the pot sit in water either.  Seeing a touch of color through the Winter creates a different atmosphere in the home bringing in warmth and beauty for all to enjoy.

HAPPY GARDENING!
