Storing My Tropical Plants Indoors

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

As many of you know, I have quite a large collection of warm weather plants at my farm, including citrus trees and other specimens. Because I live in a four-season region, during colder months, it’s crucial these plants move inside, where the temperature and humidity levels can be monitored and controlled. Plants that spent the summer at Skylands, my home in Maine, or at Lily Pond in East Hampton, are all brought back to Bedford for storage. Most of them are kept in one of two large hoop houses designated specifically for these container plants. It’s a tedious process to put all of them away, but a very important one that keeps all my plants healthy.
