Moving My Plants Outdoors for the Season

I love large urns filled with tropical plants.

I have a rather sizable collection of tropical specimens at my Bedford, New York farm. During the winter, they are all stored in special greenhouses. Once the warm weather arrives, they are all brought out for display. Most of the plants are placed in various locations here at Cantitoe Corners, but a selection will also spend the summer up at Skylands, my dear home in Maine. It is a big undertaking to move all these plants at the beginning and end of each season. Thankfully, I have the help of a strong outdoor grounds crew and some heavy-duty farm equipment to get the job done.
