Hi everyone,
I live in St. Louis, Missouri in the US and there is going to be rain for the next two weeks nonstop. Should I bring some trees into the garage where I wintered them that has fluorescent lights or just leave them outside. It has already been raining for a few days and I don't know if there is a point where to much rain is bad. Thanks for the Help, Shohin Kid

I don't think rain will hurt a tree in good soil. If you have a tree that is root-bound in bad loamy soil, you might want to bring it in to avoid the risk of root rot. The important thing is to not allow the tree to SIT in water - don't use anything like humidity trays or saucers and allow the pot to drain freely with air flow underneath.

The rain is good for them. I love when it rains. You'll see a ton of growth. Rain is sort of like a mild fertilizer as contains nitrogen and other goodies.
