Potting Tropical Plants for the Season

The outdoor terraces and stone ledges around my Winter House are filled with potted plants.

This time of year, I always display a variety of warm weather specimens around my home. These tropical plants are usually kept inside my greenhouses where they can be properly maintained, but it's nice to see them outdoors in beautiful ornamental urns during spring and summer. Last week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, filled a collection of pots outside my carport. Some of the smaller ones were planted with calla lilies, wild ginger, alocasias, and ferns.

Here are some photos.
