Very timely thread and good advice for those dedicated to bringing plants in. As for me....With the rain to come down and be chiilly all week, this weekend was do or die time. This fall I am just thinking die. I have too much going on to let myself get sad about losing plants. And too many new exciting plants will be out there come spring. So far I have mentally put a few special ones on the DO list (wil come in) . And today I dug my plumeria and potted her. hoping against hope she will bloom inside for me. And not be devoured by spider mites. Also I dug and potted three variegated brugs,One's got buds, ones just Y'ed and might bud, the last is quite small. They can't ship or I 'd send them to anyone here that wants. My friend is connected to some kind of local gardening group and I may find someone locally who wants one. Course ,the leaves have lots of caterpllar holes and look kinda crappy...
Otherwise, they'll just be allowed to go dormant and I'll have them for next spring. That still leaves two large ones in ground that have bloomed three times each this summer and budding for a fourth YAY.

In reality, the night we get frost I will probably bring in armfuls of stuff, bugs and all .
