    Moving to Fort Lewis, Washington!!!

    Hiya everyone!

    So, the Army is going to be placing me in (by my choice) Fort Lewis, WA which is southwest of Tacoma and North East of Olympia. From what I can see it looks to be a CP haven for growing, but I could be wrong. Shows zone 8-9 I think from what I can gather. Humidity decent. Lower on the sun though and higher on the overcast and rainy lol.

    Anyone able to clue me in a bit better? Greenhouse use? Winter care? I will be there in December.

    Thanks all!!!
    Currently I own Dormant 1 VFT, 1 Dormant Sarracenia & One Purple Pitcher

    Sounds like a great plan. Would love to meet someone in person who enjoys these like me. My wife...Not so much haha.

    Do you use a greenhouse at all? I have that small one I will be taking.
