Last fall I had left many little babies attached to the spider plants when putting them in storage. Removed those and put in water to grow roots - these will be planted then. So if anyone in the area is looking for a start of this plant...come on by.
Another plant I get the most for my money is the geranium...in the fall by removing most of the dirt from the roots, storing them in a sack or box, away from any light, putting them in a cold/not freezing place they go into a deep sleep. The middle of March they start to wake up and send out little new leaves. After knocking off the dead leaves and cutting back the shriveled part they were planted in several locations. Right now they sort of look like sticks stuck in the ground.
Here are a few pictures of the Spring look at the Watkins place.

Now if we just had a pretty lawn...I can always dream.
