Some of my plants ticked away for the winter!

Yes, I can finally say they are all in for the winter, in the greenhouse. The only ones in there are a few that need a longer growing season to ripen fruit and a few select tropicals along with orchids that love high humidity!

Enjoy.

That's amazing!!! Truly an incredible collection, really enjoyed looking at it! Not sure you left yourself room to get in there...? Wow. I just want to put my head in there and take a deep breath.

Do you think your typo in the title was a Freudian slip? Are the plants ticked off?

Hi Mike!!

Beautiful collection!! I think i see a familiar Gardenia in a few of those pics? ;-)

I also noticed the slip and i had to chuckle like Purpleinopp.. I think she nailed it!! They are "ticked" to be inside and will be so happy once spring rolls around again so they can have there space. They all look so happy though and im sure it gives you such satisfaction to rest inside the greenhouse on some of these cold nasty days. I true "escape" that is needed during the winter. This is why i want to keep my trees in my greenhouse so i can "get away" if only for a few minutess. It is very relaxing to get lost in those beutifull plants.. My "Calgon Moment.."

Great job as always..

Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. You are one of a kind!! SO is your mom.

Mahalo to you all!!

Mike, I didn't realize you grew all that, beside specializing in Hoya! Most excellent.

How do you manage to do that, Mike!? How can you keep all those lovelies out there and not worry so much about the changing temperatures? What kind of heat source do you use?

Everything looks great! :-)

I just came back to drool some more! :-) I love seeing Mike's plant collection and some of the more interesting types he has! And they all look so healthy and beautiful... gosh, I sure wish I had a heated greenhouse... but I couldn't imagine what it would cost to heat the one we have. I only use it in spring and summer.
