Great Plants for winter

I was on Fresh Morning this weekend. Great fun with Mary Ito. I mentioned a couple of plants I think people should look at for indoors possibilities:
Papyrus ‘Baby Tut’ was a marvelous annual this year. If you can rescue it, bring it indoors in a container with bagged potting soil. Cut back to about an inch above the soil in the container. Make sure it never dries out and do the pebble in a saucer trick. Keep them in a sunny spot in temperatures between 16 and 24C and see how they will work out during the winter. The soft floaty fronds are worth the effort.

The other plant I enjoyed in containers all over the garden, deck and now I have one indoors. It’s called Plectranthus ‘Mona Lavender’. In the past these annuals have performed really well indoors. Just don’t water them too often and give it lots of light.

I’ll put up pictures of them as soon as I figure out, once again just how small I have to have them. It’s a constant learning curve.
But the new Quarterly will be out this week so contact me and we’ll send it along to you.

    Hello Dearest Marjorie,
    I was going through some typed notes June C. had written me many years ago. Gosh I miss her. I miss her timely notes. She told me about you once, you were a dear friend of hers. She said she loved laughing with you….She was fiercely loyal to her friends. I reach out only to relay that I think of her often and our world is certainly empty without her brilliance.

    respectfully in heart, Mdm Samm

    Marjorie I just love all your plants and photos! It’s tough keeping plants alive year round here in Canada unless we keep the heat on all day while we’re at work, but nonetheless I always enjoy looking at your latest ideas! Thanks for sharing!
