What do you think about this?
My husband told me he is going to seal the single car garage next to the old house. It has has basket weave siding, he will staple thick plastic inside the walls. It doesn't have any floor, just dirt. He said I can store all my plumeria and tropical plants inside. I am worried, since there is no lighting. They will all be in the dark. I will put a small heater inside, because there is no insulation( but can only turn on when I am there). The house attached is up about 3 ft with tin surrounding it. Last year I had them in his 3 car garage, but we did not even had a freeze. What do you think, will this work? We already have tons on acorns falling, so it's going to be a cold winter. I am scared to do this, but do not have a choice. Do you have any suggestions, as to what to do to help my plants. I wonder if I get over head light( there is no lights currently in the garage). He is a retired firefighter, and will not let me leave christmas lights on, or a slow cooker unless I am there. I do not live at the coast, and would have to drive down to turn on lights or the heater. I have quite an investmest in new plants, and would hate to loose them. Any suggestions will be apprecaited. 95% of my plants are new, and need to remain in the pots for another year before I can bare root store them. 5% I was planning on storing bare root, but now think they would have a better chance if I put them in pots in this new storage area. What do you think? I had everything planned, but now am lost. Please any suggestions that might help. Barbra
