Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Before and After

This is the plant I was most sorry to see freeze. My poinsettias did so well this year, blooming early in December. At least I got to enjoy them through Christmas.

Hi Susan: I bundled and draped for hours yesterday and today unbundled and put all that paraphernalia away for hopefully the rest of the winter. I'm glad I did it afterall -- was able to save most of my tender plants. Fortunately my shade helps cover some of the tropicals.

Sorry about your poinsettia-- they don't like it that cold for sure.

Meems...Glad to hear your plants were mostly spared. As you know, that was probably (and hopefully) the one and only night of freezing weather. It's crazy but I always worry about my plants out there when the temps drop to 32 or lower. My yard will enjoy a good spring clean-up this year. Happy New Year!
