Do you like our conservatory?
Well, it isn't really a conservatory, it's a partially heated sunroom.
It's been here all along, but it's always been a little too cold for tropical houseplants.
I guess it is a conservatory by some definitions. It's south-facing, and has windows on three sides.
Definitely not a greenhouse, because it's part of our house and it doesn't have a glass roof.
Perhaps I can call it our Orangery. Or our Lemonry/Camelliary, because those are the plants we plan to grow in this room during the winter.
We purchased a Meyer Lemon as our Christmas present to each other. The Fishman was as excited about it as I was--maybe more so.
Any cultivar suggestions?
- It will need to be potted.
- During the winter months, the room temperature ranges from roughly 40F to 50F at night, and 40F to 60F during the day.
- During the summer, the Lemon and the Camellia will be outside on the patio.
I'm picturing them now ...
Isn't it fun to try new things?
