Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

@jacaranda it goes in my bar Barbara, its frost free in there. The leaves die off, but they start again in spring.

I’d better build a bar then, Dave 🤣🤣 Failing that I could put it in the shed or garage I suppose? I kept the last one in the greenhouse but I think it was too cold there. Have a great day 😘

@rob36 i put them in my bar rob, which is frost free. The leaves slowly go yellow over winter, so i take them off then, their bigger this year, so i might have to remove them first.

Wow yours are much bigger then mine did you cut them back to over winter them ? I did I lost one altogether and the other although healthy is quite small with only 1 leaf @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

comment
davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

@tmwignall I'm lucky that I've got room to keep them frost free, so they kept their leaves most of the winter. They did start yellowing though, so cut them off, and new growth started almost straight away. I've got them in my polytunnel now, for a couple more weeks then I'll put them outside. Their getting greenfly on them at the moment, so need to sort that.

Is yours indoors Dave? Mines in my garage, with no light. Been tempted to get it out soon and put it in the poly tunnel.

@richard.spicer.7906 i put them in the house about 4 weeks ago rich, and they have started to come to life. Prior to that they were in my bar outside, which is frost free, but still cold in winter. They slowly deteriorated in there.

comment
richard.spicer.7906

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been worrying about. It wasn’t supposed to grow but a leaf has come through but obviously yellow as it’s in the dark so not doing much for the plant. Might start slowly introducing it to light and then will be ready for poly for a bit till frosts gone. Cheers Dave 👍🏼 (yours is looking quite healthy btw)

A bit of #advice needed please. If i can keep these going over winter, in a frost free room, is it still best to cut the leaves off, or can they stay. Havnt got the heart when they still looking healthy.

If you've got room to keep them on then leave them on 😉 When you put them outside again next year, the current leaves will struggle with the sun but the new leaves when they come through will be fine

@vec thanks julie, it seems criminal to cut the leaves off when they still look good.

I've left the growing leaf on mine in the greenhouse. I brought one indoors last year and it didn't stop growing. Had to keep chopping it back to keep it on the windowsill 😂 If it's indoors, water when it needs it as it will dry out just don't drown it

As these aren't hardy Elaine, it's best to keep them in pot so you can bring them in every winter. If you have a big frost free space to put them in overwinter, you can let them run riot but they do have to brought in as not at all hardy 😊 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
