Overwintering Like It Is Spring

This morning was my zone 8b’s first frost of the season. And, caught us a bit off guard. Driving the coast this morning to class, I began dreaming of what to overwinter in my house this year. Frost does that to me. I have always lived in drafty houses…from Los Angeles, California to Charleston, South Carolina. And, what better bright and happy flower than a primrose (Primulus)for a drafty winter window sill? They love to be cool and moist. Indirect bright light and night temps of about 50 degrees fahrenheit will make these come indoors quite well and be your friend during the short days coming.
