Snowbird gardening – March 2022

I haven’t posted in awhile as you may have noticed. We are spending some time away from winter. I eagerly await the gardening season in New England but its not quite there yet. I’ve been doing a bit of gardening though. I like to grow my own cilantro and have two containers of it which are doing quite well and have already been harvested a couple times.

I also have started some Brugmansia cuttings. You may remember the big beautiful yellow cultivar “Jean Pasco” which I have been growing for at least 10 years now and the photos I post in the summer. Every winter, I cut it back so I can get it into the basement for overwintering. I had over a dozen cuttings this year and gave some away, but I brought some to Florida with me to give to my daughter-in-law and some Florida friends. The cuttings are doing great.

I also received permission from our landlord to plant a couple of cuttings here. It will be fun to see what they look like next winter.

More later

  1. Our brugmansias got damaged by frost this year! How embarrassing! The weather does not get very cold here, and should not have bothered them under the canopies of redwoods. Well, it did not kill them back to the roots, so the main trunks are fine. In the process of pruning, I took a few cuttings from viable stems. They get frosted every few years or so. I just did not expect this to be one of those years.
