Frost warning sat night - what will you be doing?
OK .. It's time ! I just heard on the news that metrowest area is going to get its first frost on saturday night. What will you be doing before the frost and right after? What are you planning on overwintering?
I will try to overwinter
2 brugmansias - dormant in dark basement
few calla lilies - dormant in the basement.
2 colocasia esculenta - green one and black magic - will try to grow as houseplant
3 tropical hibuscus - houseplant
3 bananas - houseplant
Pennisetum Rubrum - houseplant. I have never tried overwintering this before.
I plan on taking some cuttings from sweet potato vines. I will also dig up the tubers after frost and try to save them. I am planning on taking some colues cuttings as well.
After frost, I have dahlias and cannas to dig up and store.
I have a few tuberous begonias and caladiums. Do I wait for the frost to kill them before digging the tubers?
saturday is going to be a busy day. What will you be saving?
