    Re: Asters blooming!

    Are you sure they are asters? I think what you have are painted daisies. From where I am from, North NJ, aster leaves are narrow. I could be wrong though.

    Wintering nucs in a garage or shed

    Is it wise to winterize nucs in a shed or a garage? The entrance will be screened so they don't wander out in the garage and they will be put outside during warm spell to cleanse.
