In El Paso they fret over wintering plants. So they build them a greenhouse or two. And you would do well to follow suit, so you too can have happy and healthy cactus this time of year. And hothouse tomatoes too. From the El Paso Times.
Peter Beste, who has a large cactus garden in the Northeast, uses a greenhouse for cactus from South America.
We just got a desert tortoise, sort of a rescue. I hope our red-foots like her.
