After that, I just came home and worked on planting the first of the two hibiscus trees. I think I got it in the ground well enough, but I had a really hard time getting it out of the stupid pot. I guess that maybe it's better not to buy pots that aren't cylindrical if you're going to be planting something? Oh well, though, it eventually came out and I don't think it was any worse for the wear. At least, if it makes it through the planting process it'll be good to go. And it's the only way that I"ll be able to attempt to keep them, since I can no longer move the pots into the garage over the winter since the car and truck are in there now. The roots would never survive out in the open in pots in the cold. I'm going to do the other one tomorrow, and I sure hope that it goes a little better than this one. Or at LEAST comes out of the pot with an intact root ball. I'm still thinking about it to decide if I can figure out a better way to get it out of there. I need another person to help me, but since I don't have anyone I'm just going to wing it. Made me rethink trying to do the rosemary, though, since it's in the same exact pots.
Here's another pic of Mocha for you, though I know you're probably tired of seeing her.
