Wim, do you grow Fuchsia arborescens outside all year or do you have it in a container to bring inside for winter?

Maggi,

I grow it in a container and bring it inside for winter. I don't think it can stand even a bit of frost.

By the way, the pots were from my grandma, placed in my
basement for the last 15 years!

Hi,

What a beautiful photo of Anomatheca/Freesia laxa, :) I miss mine, now in dormancy.

Thomas, congratulations for those pots, they are great. And the last one, near the colchicums(?), it's very nice. I wish to can have my garden to make places like these.

A days ago someone trough away a pot with Sempervivum and Echeveria. I picked them with me, I could let them there, don't you agree?
The first one are still blooming (beautiful rose flowers). All are a little dry, and these weekend I want to repott them.  And with your pots so well done, I've already an idea for these Sempervivum.  ;D

Oleg - Are the Galtonias growing outdoors and overwintering there?

johnw
They are growing outdoors but I have to dig them up after the first frost in autumn and overwinter them in dry sand in the fridge or cellar to plant them in the garden at the beginning of May
