Temperatures are very springlike in St. Louis this week: between 60ºF (15ºC) and 70ºF (21ºC) every day with lows that don't go below 50ºF (10ºC). That means it's time to start moving things out of the garage and basement!
I start with the garage, as that's where the plants are most in the way. With my workshop in the garage, any floorspace that a plant uses is space that I want back as soon as possible!
Plus it was getting feeble fluorescent lighting. I may need to prune it back a bit, but so far I'm so happy with how it's done!
A little bit of insect activity...
...but it looks so fluffy and pretty!
The Russelia equisetiformis is supposed to readily overwinter in dry dormancy:
We'll see, as this looks completely dead.
Pennisetum 'Vertigo' only got water once too, but the soil was quite moist when it was put away:
Clearly this is an easy one to overwinter, since last year it survived being in an open bag in the garage all winter.
So nice to see these outdoors again!
Even nicer to get the shop space back...
...so I can actually access some of those materials in racks on the wall!
The most exciting thing though:
Being able to work with the doors open!
Even though it reminds me that there are so many projects awaiting out there...
