    What to Do???

    When I first built my shade house I thought that I would never run out of space or have plants that were too big.



    But then I bought a few plants– ok, more than a few…






    And others grew taller and taller…



    Everybody was getting a bit cramped!

    What to do?

    My wife and daughter suggested that I sell or give them away…

    I traded a few, but was still running out of room and several were getting too tall.

    Again, what to do?

    I thought about trimming them back and making cuttings. But most of them hadn’t flowered yet and cuttings mean s even more plants.

    What to do?

    I took a look around and found a bit of space that was being underutilized…




    It took some moving and cleaning



    And a little shade cloth…



    But I think it turned out pretty well

    Even the displaced cacti , bromeliads, and succulents seem to be happy in their new home at the end of the drive way next to the original shade house.

    Personally, I would sell your wife and daughter, not give them away. I'm sure you could fetch a handsome sum and buy a few acres for your neps.

    (Great collection by the way...)
