Storing my tropical plants during the cold weather

It's no secret that I love large urns filled with tropical plants, and people often wonder where and how these plants are stored over the winter. Well, the truth is that without the help of a strong grounds crew, some heavy equipment, and heated storage areas, keeping these specimens would be next to impossible. Recently, there was a scramble moving all of these plants to safety before the first frost arrived, and I thought it would be interesting to show you some of the methods that are put to use at the farm.

This is a heated hoop house where many of my tropical plants are moved to and kept safe from freezing temperatures.
