HI brug lovers! I don't think I've posted here before, but have read lots of your posts and gained a lot of knowledge about brugs. They are such beautiful plants, and I am envious of all who can grow them in the ground. Which brings me to my question:
I live in zone 7a, getting more like 7b these days. I have a neighbour who has a thriving grove of banana trees which she winters over in the ground with heavy mulch of leaves, wrapping of stems, etc. and it makes me wonder if I could do something similar with my brugs, of which I have 6. They winter over OK in the garage but would do better if some people in the household would remember to close the garage door. Always. No exceptions. But it takes them a long time to recover in the spring, and I would like them to get a better start.
Any thoughts would be welcome. Meanwhile, I am going to read the threads. Too wet to go work in the garden this morning.
