    Overwintering tropical plants

    Just posted about the grow light I got. I have it set up in my basement which stays between 55-75f during winter. I have Mexican flame vine plants that I wish to keep as well as 2 tropical hibiscus plants. This grow light has red, blue and white lights but no instructions as to which to use...

    What's your latest garden buy/ bargain.....share please.

    Hubby and I were walking the aisles at Ollies Barham outlet and found grow lights for $19.99. Thought it was a fair price so picked one up. Went on line to see about which settings to use. The cheapest price for this light is $48, highest $100! Road trip back to Ollies!

    Austin roses scent?

    Saw your post- I have 2 large Blanc- they bloom all season. I cut them back after each bloom and they just send out more buds.

    Austin roses scent?

    I love the rugosa roses for their hardiness and the scent. My favorite it Blanc Double de Coubert.

    Looks like a Knock-out rose. They are great, require little to no pruning and long bloom time.

    How to transport Aloe vera plants without pots?

    A lot of plants are shipped with roots packed in wet newspaper. If you are going to put it in plastic, make sure to keep it cool.
