Plants outside for the summer?

barbmockMay 2, 2013

I am hoping to get some warm weather soon, but it has been so slow in coming this year, we are still getting some cool and rainy days and nights. It feels like summer will never get here.

Have you been able to move your sans outside yet?

Now that's out of my system... the spring has been long in coming. I finally have flowers on the weeping cherry. All around me, at lower elevations, they've been in bloom for nearly two weeks.

I've just begun to water the Sans a bit more. Once it gets warm enough to put them out, the roots should actively growing again, or at least that's what I hope for.

The vegetable garden has been turned and weeded for over a month... waiting... for... spring...

Just the jades and other harder plants. Not risking the Sans yet.

I put jade plants on my back porch, hoping to get a bit of color to show. We're still too cool at night for sans.

What a bummer that we can only enjoy outside conditions for our sans 5 months out of the year. Need to rethink moving south. Our friends in Florida in zone 10 don't love plants like we do and what a shame. They can grow them outside almost all year long. They have some out side all year but they look a little shabby for it.

we'll have low to hi 50s this week at nite and hi-60s during the day - I am putting out a couple of my movable sans to stay overnite, but not my giant one. I won't be able to move that one in, if temps drop.
