Tibouchina urvilleana
I live Leigh-on-Sea, about a mile from the sea as the crow flies, my above is in a pot and was wondering if it would be better to put in my greenhouse for the winter months?
It has been flowering since July and still has some buds waiting to open. Also I was wondering when is the best time to prune it.

Lovely plants but they are a tropical shrub and i would keep it in a greenhouse or conservatory with a minimum night temp of around 10 degrees C. I'd trim it if needed in spring.

Wish I had a conservatory, I have a summerhouse though, would that be better than a greenhouse?

As long as it's warm enough, especially at night, it'll be fine.
