Wow! Your yard is so beautiful, you have really done a great job! Just looking at your pictures makes me feel like I am on vacation. I too have been planting a lot of tropicals in my backyard and am now wondering where I will keep them all for the winter. Do you have a greenhouse or do you take them all in your house?

hi boca joe,

I fell in love with your garden! It is GORGEOUS! Oh, I sent you an email. Anyways, here are more follow up questions.

I have questions for the plants posted below. Those are your pictures.

1. Do you plant them from seeds?
2. Do you move them to the ground or do you keep them in pots? I noticed most of them are in pots.
3. How do you replant them in spring?
4. During winter, how do you overwinter/protect them? Do you bring it inside the house and put it in the basement then provide florescent lightning?
5. Can I buy them on ebay?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil

Beautiful pics as always Joe!! I always enjoy your yard pictures, it's inspiring to me as I am trying to create my little piece of the tropics here. BTW, the Chicago pics from Lincoln Conservatory, was that a good way to spend an afternoon? I'm going to be in Chicago next month for business for a couple of weeks and have a couple of days to enjoy the area. Would you recommend it as a spot to go?

Your gardens are absolutely breath taking. Most impressive is that you are in a fairly cold climate. It must be quite a bit of work trying to keep everything alive all winter.

Your plants look so healthy and nary a blemish. Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your photos.

Well...I live in SW FL and I CAN'T GET THAT LOOK!!! LOLAM

Just gorgeous, Joe!

Oddly enough, that blue hydrangea looks right at home amidst the riot of color.
Great job!

BTW: How do you keep your Papyrus alive & kickin'?
All three of mine croaked...LOL
