Its to expensive to use one for my budget and to many leaks any how ... when I did have an ac window unit it would freeze up cuz was running all time when your light bill is over 300 a month and you only make in the 700s its to bloody much. I live in an old 1968 trailer. Old insulation what's left of it any how and old original windows that leak like a sieve. It wasn't worth it cus never really got cool inside just a tad cooler than what it is now. A waste of money and resources. Been over👇🏻

Do you have a heater in your green house? If not just mulch it heavy @kez001uk as long as its not being directly touched by the dew freeze snow it should be safe. But keep mulched for added protection take away some much in spring.😊

Only if its at the door. My dog angel whos outside does but its random and at randome things so its not an accurate warning system any more lol and she thinks she's a ambulance and a fire truck when she hears them as well so I get a lot of *dog sirens* lmao @columbiariver it is crappy and its being done on purpose not for some cut flowers .. I found the flower up the road a bit where I walk duke at for his long poopy walk .

Soon, is it an annual in this zone or you replant every year? They had them earlier in the year at Lowes but I didn't get any cause the tag said it was non hardy below 32

1w
comment
cyndi

In my zone it comes back even after crazy snow we had. Even in a pot. In yours if you plant in pot or ground mulch very heavy after last freeze remove a little of mulch from the "crown" top of plant they die back but if roots are strong will regrow. You can actually plant them late fall for nexts years growth sooner. @Mystic666 also cover it up if you get snow take a old water cooler jug cut off base use base for waterdrip tray use top for winter plant protection and mini green houses as well.

It snowed 5 inches here it never has snowed that deep here b4 and lasted over a week. Last 2 yrs our winters have been wayyyy colder than normal 17°f few days in row some days so if mine came back they should survive if proper care is done to protect them Matt @Mystic666

Hows yours coming along? Good i hope.. Come fall if ya want take an empty pot and put a bunch of dif milkweeds in it then a thin thin layer of soil tad bit of mulch and just leave outside come springtime you will have some without doingthem indoors. Theres a lot of plants you can do that way for less work later all you will have to do is seperate them and place where you want them in yard or make mixed planters in random spots for bees and butterflies.

2w
comment
cyndi

You just might. Did you cover them up with some mulch material or leaves? If so i wouldnt see why not. But I would personally ask someone near your area if milk weed makes an annual or perennial in your area. Mine keeps coming back in my growing zone.but like any plant protect it well and it will surpise you. I hope it does for you. If so you will get blooms sooner. Start your new seeds indoors sooner so after last frost/freeze can transplant and have a head start on them. @columbiariver xoxoxo

We were taught that soil rooting better because when transplanted plant has to grow all new roots.

2w
comment
cyndi

@moore.794 i have had no proplems this way the trick is to soak the soil before you put the newly rooted plants in it. Use a thicker stick to make the hole then gently place new plant in push soil around it and water one more time it will do fine. All my plants have had no problems at all with adjustments this way.

They also can be grown from cuttings as well so if ya want to share a lot of seeds but want more plants faster this is a def trick works well too @Jencie

Very welcome Kyla @punkyky Trust me it's noooo big deal I have so many plants of this that do come back year after year, so sending ya some seeds is a blessing. I collect the seeds to share cuz I sure don't need them. Haha. I have over 15 plants this year (that's a guess) but it's a lot that come back and I do root some of them as well. Xoxox I'll send ya some out soon prob first week of next month. I'll try

@jennlamaye I havent counted but I have multiple places of them more than 20 I think. Next year will be more and more types as well. I do know that you can cut them back and will regrow following yr if protected in winter. They do look great bushy as well. But apids can be a problem so be prepared to zap/kill them asap if seen they and milk weed bugs can make the plants untasty for caterpillars.

Don't forget water sources in multiple areas as well.

Jeff do you heat your greenhouse? If so you could start some early in there @jeatacake

2w
comment
jeatacake

Only if frost is forecast & then it is to keep it just above freezing. The other problem in winter here is the lack of light. In late December here it's down to about 6 hours & then it's often cloudy. Seedlings really struggle in such conditions, especially seeds from more favourable conditions. 😕

comment
cyndi

Could try to set the seed let them "winter" some and then add a grow light of some sort and some out door Xmas lights inside to help with some heat and some extra lighting just an idea. Or start some indoors in a window with brighter light after you winter them some. @jeatacake

comment
jeatacake

What I had in mind was to start them around early Feb in my heated propagator, but could try the odd ones in the house on a south facing window ledge a bit earlier 👍
