Any place that will 'board' plants for winter?

Tucked into my garden border are 8 or 10 tender plants that I leave outdoors in their pots all summer, and overwinter in a spare room under grow lights. This is getting impractical, and I'd pay to have them overwintered in a greenhouse. (A few are tropicals; the rest would do best in cool, bright conditions.) Does anyone know of a reliable place where I might have this done?

RE: Any place that will 'board' plants for winter?

Broadfield Gardens provides this service to Massachusetts, Connecticut, and eastern New York State. I'm trying to arrange a pickup for the weekend of October 29-30. If anyone else would like to take part, please post here!

Meanwhile, I'd still love to hear about local farmers, greenhouses, or individuals who might take this on for a fee. My own plants would occupy about 30 square feet of greenhouse space.
