Moving to NOLA next year

dirtygardener73(9a)August 18, 2010

Hi! I'm living in SW Florida, but I'm moving to NOLA April of next year (tentative date). I've been planning this move forever, and I'm really excited. I'm going to be staying with friends while I look for a place, and hope to get half a double with a small yard.

I'm originally from SC, and looking forward to being able to grow some of my favorite plants again. I love tropicals, but they get out of hand so quickly. I'm ready for some well-behaved southern garden plants.

I'll be lurking around here checking out the scenery, and probably asking questions about plants I can bring with me.

You can call me DG.

Thanks! I am researching which of the plants I now have will survive in 8b, and it seems there are quite a few; crinums, crape myrtles, daylilies, etc. I'm still making my list!
