Re: Letting most of the garden go

Thanks for your thoughtful answer...

However....I started with over 30+
palms and 30+ cacti,at some point something
has to give(not my back)..the combo of a slum lord
for a landlord but mostly the shear number of plants mean
at some point thing need to be cleared out a little and
I just don't have the resources to cover everything right now.

In addition,I have backups in the form of lots of potted cacti and
palms to start a new and "better" garden should I move,at some point
you have to see what can make it without heat...some of the cacti
are very hardy and may be fine with the warmth in the cover when the
sun is out but if you have zone defining lows here...well...you can
still grow Maple trees
