Please, no early frost.

rmbill(6a)September 13, 2011

I just went thru my Brugs and counted 28 with buds. About a half dozen with thier first buds and the rest with massive flushes coming. I am hoping that Mother nature doesn't get me with an early frost. I should have at least another month but you never know here in Michigan. I want to take pictures of those that I lost the tags for so, at least, I will be able to say what the flowers look like to those I send cuttings to. I'm getting kind of excited about the big flushes. I may never have another year this good so I want pictures. As bad as the weather was for so many people, it is too bad I can't share the wealth. Well, I guess I kinda sorta am with the cuttings.

We haven't gotten frost yet here in Black Hawk SD but it has been chilly the last two nights. Hopefully you don't get frost Bill, I too want to see your lovelies! :)

I'm hoping the same thing. In an average year I should have another 4-6 weeks before a killing frost, but we haven't had an average year in a long time. Good luck to both of us.

I have been thinking the exact same thing

Please no frost

The gardens, not only Burgmansia, looks so good.
Was quite cold this morning maybe 40's .
Gets one to worry

Yes, Bill love to see some photos

Growing Brugmansia, is exciting, especially, as you mentioned, having a good year and so far up north

Diane, Where is your house in Florida? I see some here from Florida that have blossoms in early spring. I hope that works for you. I have a pretty good selection for you. I'll be wanting to see some pictures come spring.
