Default 2020 pots are outside and now thriving

i did put a couple in the ground though
like my biggest basjoo
if it gets big enough i will try to mulch it and overwinter it outside
(with back up pups indoors)

anyhow the ensete ventricosums all died unfortunately
quite sad as they were getting taller than me and then bugs, under watering and over watering killed them
one was brought outside as a stump and made an attempt to put out some little leaves but died
next year i guess
just got some glaucum seeds in the mail... too late to try?

tldr?
here is the quick video walk through

Your tomato plants are looking good......mine had to start over from the April deep freeze so I am a couple feet behind.
Great inviting garden you have
Looks awesome.

Oxalis.....best plant ever..

Sweet......I topped a couple and fimmed a few and bent some others..... we will see how Inderterminate plants spread.
Last year I had a Chocolate cherry 15 feet across.....ended up giving a few away

Mr Stripy and some Jetstar are the plants this year.
I do have a few buds on the plants.......I hope they sort themselves out

not sure if these were in the video but i staked them yesterday because it had started to rain


left to right these ones are:
basjoo, dwarf red possibly and a mystery one from a local source


dwarf orinoco, dwarf green and hua moa


the hua moa again and a dwarf cavendish which is loving the "banana nectar" and put out a new leaf


gran nain, dwarf namwa, lacatan, tall namwa and supposed blue java


here is another pic of the dwarf green... the mother plant was knocked over and died and the pup is growing like crazy


here is another pic of the basjoo in the ground

Your monarda is to die for and your plumeria rivals plants grown in the deep south.

Great video!

Looking mighty fine..plants look top quality and shape from the vendor.
Some great additions to your garden.

Looks like you are going to need some more grow lights for the off season.

Default Re: 2020 pots are outside and now thriving

i gave away many plants this spring
at one point i had 125 or more banana plants (edit:two years ago)
some may be returned this fall by people who dont want them in the house
most people get attached to them and keep them though

hopefully i can keep the same footprint in the basement

edit: 930 am hummingbird at the monarda !

Default Re: 2020 pots are outside and now thriving

i need to start a new thread since the plants are not thriving anymore but that can wait until the come inside
the forecast for last night was not looking good (6C) so i set my alarm and at 4 am got the bbq going with an oscillating fan above it to blow warm air around
the temperatures dipped lower than forecasted but only for a brief time
i got the electric space heater out for a bit as the temperature kept dropping
wasteful i know but it is the only cold night in the forecast for a while
the long term forecast is all above 10C overnight
i did not want to bring them inside already

Same here, it was about 5C in the morning. I did nothing since I wasn't home. Everything looks ok aside from some minor signs of cold damage on my Veinte cohol pup... I am hoping to keep things outside for another month if possible.
