Here's the deal, more or less. Plants in ground, large pots are on their own. Now, the small pots are in question. There may be about 30, mostly pint & quart size, some a bit larger, perennial starts. These didn't move last season for whatever reason, some being need more time/growth. I was thinking to bring in some at a time towards end of January to warm up, get growth and a head start to try-to-sell come March-April. Well, ol' Mother Nature has other plans, as she does. It is going down COLD (for us) to teens and perhaps single digits. Not knowing if the smaller pots would tolerate that, am bringing in.
Looking around for space, put about 20 in the half basement. There is some window light, temp stays 50's/60's. I have kept tropicals, lemon grass, sago palm there staying green all winter. I am thinking the pots brought in will warm up and show some growth. Then I can try to stuff around the house on window sills etc.
I know some plants do best with a rest and freeze, and these have had about a month. Enough? Too early to bring back to leafing out? This is an eclectic assortment including comfrey, bee balm (bergamont), butterfly weed, coneflower and a few others.
Of course if I see a week/10 day run of temps above freezing, could get my exercise bringing these back out!
