Original Tip No. 2 Wintering Plants

2. Some annuals, like begonias, poinsettias, some violas, can be brought inside, or have cuttings taken, or coaxed into going dormant to come up again the next year. Luther Burbank I'm not, yet I have gernaniums and one poinsettia that have done very well this way. I bring in a pot or two every year, and put them in my kitchen sink; I have double sink and don't need both of them. The geraniums thrive this way. My mother had a begonia this way for so long, its teracotta plot rotted under it. She replanted it in the ground in the spring, and took it out again. She was dedicated, though she had me and her house and taught seven sections of Spanish and ran the foreign language dpeartment at our high school. She always looked good, too. Don't know how she did it. I have luck with volunteer plants, too, violas in particular. Pumpkins and gourds occasionally replant this way; I leave them on the ground in our flower bed, even after Halloween. I like to fead the rest to our local animals. By the way, we saved a nest of newborn bunnies this week. Their mother and two other rabbits were guarding them. We set up a homemade hutch of a childs chair flanked by two school band signs. In the center were two overturned metal containers, like a child's bucket only wider. Tis the season. Cuttings are another good way to winterize; umbrella plants and coral bells do very wedll this way. Enjoy the horticulture experiments. There are breat books and sites for these topics, and also your local nursery can help.
