I have 2 geranium plants that are in there second winter inside. I just check all my plants once a week and water as needed. This year I have a few dusty miller plants in with one geranium pot and the other has what I think is called a spike.

I have been told that the green spike would die but this is the second winter for that also. Not sure what is keeping them all healthy except that maybe they know they are in my grandmothers house lol.

What`s growing in your garden? Delphiniums, Painted Daisies, Roses, Peonies, Lilacs, Tuberoses, Parrot Tulips and Double Daffodils -- I`ve never met a perennial I didn`t like, but I have a weakness for flowers with fragrance. Here in Zone 7, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York, I can`t think of a better way to spend a summer morning. I'm educated in this field, but even better, I am genetically qualified: Part English gardener ancestry, part Irish potato farmer. I have degrees in related fields and a lifetime of hands-in-the-dirt experience. Not convinced? I have a daughter named Holly, a dog named Daisy, a bird named Buttercup, and a house on Garden Street. Still working on the license plate.
