Explain to the spousal unit how much money your saving by bringing the plants in so they can live and don't have to be replaced. Maybe that will help?

Loree - I did that with I think some success - I've got aloes in the front that are just now blooming - they were acquired as offsets or picked up at Home Depot in their 2 or 3 dollar pot collection... time has given them value.

When I went looking at large plants at the local nursery the other day, I was impressed at HOW MUCH value.

So I told him, look, I've done the work on these and am about to get my reward (first year of blooms) IF they die, I want to replace them with similarly sized specimens, and that will cost between 40 and 80 dollars per plant.

He stopped grumbling about the $40 spent on frost cloth, clamp lamp and spot light...
