Default Re: When you digging up?

Pretty much on hardiness. I brought in 2 potted bananas last night, a Saba and a Thai Black. Those were because they were in smaller pots. I also want to start bringing stuff in so I don't have do it it all at once, which is a real pain. But other plants depend. I usually don't get a good freeze until late Oct, last year it was late November! I covered up my basjoo Thanksgiving weekend last year, usually it's Halloween weekend. So it really depends. My non hardy elephant ears will get pulled in the next 2 weeks regardless. My biggest problem is with working full time I need to plan ahead, so if it looks like it will be getting very cold in a week or so I pull them based on how much time I have so I'm not out there at midnight in total darkness trying to put things away! So yeah no easy answer just like in spring.
