OK, I've admitted several times over that I'm really bad at taking care of container plants.
Fall is here, my green ash tree is starting to shed it's leaves, frosty weather can't be too far away. In the years past, I'd wait until the last minute -- FROST TONIGHT! and hustle my containers inside.
I'm wondering if that might not be the best way...
Should they be acclimated? Reverse of hardening off? I'd like to keep the soil life active -- i.e. I don't really want to spray or soil soak until everything's dead, like some people do, somewhere in the middle ground?
I have: 1 orchid (LBC or some combo thereof - don't feel like looking/looking up spelling Ordinarily I also have several Phalaenopsis to bring in, but they bloomed all summer inside and I didn't get the chance to put them outside.), several Fuchsias, several citrus, avocados, 1 mango, a couple of pineapples, 1 Jalepeno, several rosemary, 1 night blooming cereus, 1 stevia. I *may* dig up the 2 pineapple sage plants and the other stevia plant, oh and a couple pots of rooted Stevia cuttings.
Any advice and nuggets of wisdom gladly accepted.
