Its gorgeous good luck.

28 Feb, 2011 will fine from april-october then protected in fleece jacket over winter....i'm not taking any chances! it would probably be ok down to about -2 but its the frost that could do the damage! besides in winter it looks like a giant snowman :-)

hi sixpence...i presume you mean that the pot is protected from the underside to avoid contact with the ground?

Yes that too as cold travels up from the ground I would pack it with polystirene too the stuff that comes in boxs, you can get it so its floppy stuff I ve seen it, also where ever the root ball is if left outside

1 Mar, 2011 will end up more protected than the crown jewels lol
