I've got plants everywhere.
Three days of frost and all the tender plants came inside. The lemons are all in the potting-shed but this little calamondin, with its pretty orange fruits is small enough and attractive enough to come inside the house.
Am I the only one with agaves inside the house, I wonder! I have 3, from my front garden, potted A. desmettiana inside the house. I think they make a very attractive house plant.
Then there are all the small cactus and succulents which normally spend the summer on the hearth of the outdoor fireplace. Now they are in a sunny window.
The greenhouse is full to bursting. Plenty of A. desmettiana in there too. These are the big ones but when I took 2 out of the ground I removed at least 8 pups. They are also potted up ready for next year.
All the lemon trees are in the potting shed and there is a large agave in the garage.They are inside for the rest of the winter.
Things aren't much different from years ago, before I had a greenhouse, and would grow my pots of seedlings on a big door in the kitchen. I should have built a bigger greenhouse.
