Re: Bringing plants inside

Ronald and all,

If I remember correctly plants give oxygen in the day and Carbon Dioxide at
night - or is it the other way round? It might matter if you are sleeping in
the room and it's CO2 during the night.
Unless your house is very well draught-proofed and you never open a door or
window the plants should be all right (and you too, lol). Make sure the
plants and cuttings get enough light during the winter, windows don't let in
the make compared to their summer quarters.

We've had an unusually mild time recently so the frost warning for last
night caught me unawares, as usual. Unfortunately the mildness can with a
lot of rain and constantly damp weather. The grass loves it and is still
growing rapidly. If only it would dry out enough for me to get out with the

The mountains of Northwest Wales are not the best place to grow
pelargoniums. Apart from the damp we cannot rules out three days of constant
gale force (or worse) winds at any time of year and that can put back the
growth on plants back 5 weeks overnight. So most of my plants are in a
greenhouse which always feels far too small and glass sided shed. So the
frost protection is more a matter of getting better organised and bringing
all my frost sensitive genera into the area that is heated, when necessary.

Well there was not frost and the sun is even shining today.

I hope your plants are all tucked up warm Ingrid. Are they in a greenhouse
over the winter or do you bring them into your home?

Brrr.  David
