Lovely! Sorry it waited so long!

Karma, may I ask....after you've moved your things into your greenhouse, do you fertilize or feed anything thru the winter months. I'm looking at my tropicals and my mande and they look a little pale. I won't be moving them in for about 2 weeks yet ( I hope) but wondered if it would be good to give them a light feeding?

We stop all fertilizing the first of Sept and things start to looking pretty pale around here now! Matter of fact Oct. 1 we start the stripping of the yard so that we don't have to look at some plants' leaves. Less to clean up and chances for bad things to happen. We move into the fall damp and some just don't dry out. The reason is we want them to rest and not over do it while in the Brug House, we both need to rest. :wink: Will post when we strip the Mandes so you can see how
they look.
