Storing Tropical Plants for Winter

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

Caring for these plants means following a strict schedule, particularly at the end of the warm season. Plants that 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 placed in one of two large and special greenhouses where temperatures and humidity levels can be closely monitored and adjusted when necessary.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
