overwintersing

JONas_WINsloAugust 17, 2012

I keep some potted brugs in the house overwinter, and some go into the unheated garage.

On the garage ones, last year I had one drop its leaves and the other one didn't. Funny - there is no window in there, just light when I open the door.

This year I have 2 brugs that are still in the ground. I am wondering if I should dig them up and pot up now, or wait until a light frost makes them drop their leaves. They will then go into the garage.

I watch the weather. Usually in October I decide I better dig and pot before a frost hits them. They are almost always blooming then too so I keep them in the house blooming until they're done. Then chop chop, and downstairs they go.
