What type of plants can I grow over the fall/winter to be put outside next
I had a kalanchoe (sp?) which I had outside this year and just brought inside.
Are there any type plants similar to this that I can use inside and then come
spring, take outdoors?
Here are just a few of the plants that I bring in the house in the fall and put
back outside in the spring,,, Asparagus Fern, Oxalis, Pointsettia, Tuberous
Begonias, Geraninum, Vinca Vine.

Not sure exactly what you are asking, but all my houseplants summer outside
each year, only to return indoors when the weather cools in fall. I call it
the houseplant vacation plan :-)) Plants like the Thanksgiving and Christmas
cacti particularly like this routine - they set buds almost immediately
after returning indoors and are in bloom in just a matter of weeks. I also
take cuttings of coleus each fall, root them and winter them over as
houseplants before setting them out into containers in the garden come
spring. You can do the same for fancy leaf or scented geraniums - regular
geraniums as well, although they tend to overwinter pretty easily here on
pam - gardengal
I did that too till I had a huge container full of fire ants. I never do that
any more! Matter of fact, I am trying to get rid of all my houseplants. They
are more a pain than not, and I have a greenhouse for my fix in winter. I don't
put houseplants in it because it is an incredible waste of floor space. I'm
getting pretty good and dumping houseplants on the compost pile! I'm not
talking about prized performers, like shlumburgia, but just things which are

I take cuttings of wandering jew and coleus and grow them in water
until January. Then I take cuttings again and put them into
vermiculite, then peat pots which eventually get placed into the
gardens. Most of my cactus plants spend the summer days on the porch,
but I have one or two that get sunburn. Be careful about bringing in
pests in the fall that could infect other plants.
