There is nothing better in late winter, than going out to the greenhouses and seeing all the bog plants growing and some of the tropical water lilies starting to bloom again. We heat several greenhouses, so most of the plants we sell are available year round. But, as the days get longer and there is more daylight, the plants really start to take off. A few of the iris are starting to bloom here and there. Before we know it the 2010 shipping season will be in full swing. I can't wait to hear from all our pond friends across the country again. Looking forward to another great season helping people with their pond and plant questions.
Many of the tropical bog plants will winter well indoors in a sunny window or under a flouresant grow light. They do not need to be submerged in water. Keep the soil constantly moist by placing the potted plants in a tray of water.
