Storing All My Tropical Plants

All my tropical plants are now stored indoors for the winter.

Caring for these precious plants means following a strict schedule, particularly at the end of the warm season. Plants that spent the summer at Skylands, my home in Maine, or at Lily Pond in East Hampton, are picked up and brought back to Bedford for storage. Together with all the tropical specimens here at the farm, everything is organized and stored in a special greenhouse down near the chicken coops, where temperatures and humidity levels can be closely monitored and adjusted when necessary. It’s a tedious process to put all these container plants away, but a very important one that keeps all my plants healthy.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
