My Tropical Hoop House in Winter

Here in Bedford, New York, temperatures today are expected to be in the mid-30s with several inches of snow coming tonight - this winter has been very erratic.

Yesterday was warm enough - 67-degrees Fahrenheit - to open my tropical greenhouse for just a bit to let in some fresh air. This large hoop house is where I store most of my tropical plants over the winter months. The structure is heated and the humidity levels are closely monitored and adjusted when necessary. My Skylands gardener, Wendy Norling, who is visiting New York this week, took some time to check on all the plants and do some greenhouse grooming.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
