General Question’s

Posted by Jake on 23 February, 2009

Okay, so, most of you know this is my first Florida spring and I have some questions.

1. My Plumbago’s were frosted and I was wondering if I need to cut those back or will new growth grow on the old stems?

2. My Penta was frosted as well, so do I need to cut it back?

3. Is Spindle Palm self-cleaning or can I go aherad and clip off it’s frozen fronds. New growth is already growing out, yay!

4. When should I see my Elephant Ear’s start growing out, my Canna’s are already growing again? In Kentucky the Elephant Ear’s were usually the last plants to pop out in mid-May to early-June.

Oter than that nothing much is going on here. 70’s by Wednesday, 78 degrees Saturday, too hot, but the plants will love it! I hope everyone’s plants and everyone are doing well and will be growing soon(well, this one s for the plants, lol.).

Have a great day,


21 days until St. Patrick’s Day!

24 days until Spring Begins!
