Congrats on the garden, very beautiful plants,
I was scared when I heard the weather forecast with frost advisory
I had to move the plant close to the house under the gazebo
Any suggestions for home grow lights? Thanks

i use(2) 1000W HPS, also a bunch of 6500K T5 and 6500K T12 4 foot fluorescent

i am going to try storing some Pstems dormant this year but only ones i have a back up copy for
i tried that my first year with bananas and it was a failure partly due to a basement flood and also the temp may have been too high for them (i will try to keep them at 10 C this year)

this page needs some pics so i stood on the fence to get a different angle


and one from the ground:

ok, so the plants are still outside
the long term forecast is showing a dip in temperatures in about a week from now

a friend bought two foxtail palms this spring but the spear is too tall to fit at his place
so i will be plant sitting this winter

here is a quick video backyard tour

since half of my views are me... i know most people just look at the pics
so here are a couple highlights and a folder with a couple more
