It Paid Off!

I love it when an experiment works.  Earlier in May I shared photos of a fuchsia that I had over wintered.
 Since all chance of frost vanished the fuchsia has been outside in the gazebo.  It has been thrilling to watch it grow and develop.  I just might have blooms in a little while.

This is one experiment I will be trying again next winter.  It has been a long time since I’ve over wintered geraniums so I’m encouraged to try them again after this success.

Do you over winter any plants?
