Oh that's a good pop of color diane! These are ok to leave out where I am Kelsey. After I've enjoyed them awhile I plant them out. I'm in a weird zone, 5b-6 in Oregon. @yogi2

I do not know what to do with them. They sold them as annuals. They were only 5 dollars for a small pot. I hate to have them inside all winter and lose them. 🙁 @columbiariver

I think it will live inside or out. Just guessing though. I've never had one inside before. Just have fun with it 😉

Our weather is cooler this week (in low teens) but warming up next week into the high teens. I'm really enjoying this fall weather. Still not freezing at night but getting close now😊

Do carnations winter in your area? I really like them but don't grow them as they don't handle our winters🙁

comment
hkyfvr

I do not overwinter them. The last 2 years I got them already planted from the garden centre. They were called Easy by Frankie named after a local renowned gardener. For the first 2 years they were beautiful and smelled wonderful. This year they were not good at all. Only now my red ones are finally flowering. Probably not good overwinter. We got our first load of triple mix for our new garden today. We need 2 more trailers full. At least it got up to 20 today @gjones

I look forward to seeing your new garden area planted up I'm sure you do too😊 wonderfully warm here today 26C but a bit of a cool down tomorrow with showers. We need the moisture so I won't complain. The forecast looks really good until Oct 3 when it looks like it'll start to freeze every second night but that's a nice long fall season for us!

Thanks so much. Will do what I can this fall and add annuals and others in Spring. Something to look forward to. We are getting your warm weather today. Cannot wait to get outside. @gjones

Hope these buds will flower before the frost and cool weather prevent them from opening. May bring indoors rather than covering. ❤️☹️
