Default Re: When you digging up?

We've been having some colder weather, with nights down to mid 40's F. So far, no signs of any negative effects on my tropicals. As a matter of fact, it seems to have stimulated some to bloom. Three of my tropical hibiscus are now blooming, as well as my pink and my red mandeviilas, lantanas, plumerias, etc. Even my bananas look better. I've found that the coloration of the fish in the pond gets much more intense in the colder weather. I'm really procrastinating here, as my back and knees have really been bothering me, and the winter digs will not be pleasant. Plus, I don't want them out of my garden yet, they look so good!!
