Bougainvillea Plant. I saw one in winter garden and quite liked it to use it as a fence covering shrub but not sure if I can get one for my garden in this weather. will there be special care required or is it a no go?



I think it unlikely that a bourganvillea will survive outside in Aberdeenshire.

MG, I have seen atleast one plant in Aberdeen. I am not sure if it will be completely dead during winter or not?

Your best bet is to grow in a container and take into a greenhouse or conservatory over winter. Don't let temperature drop below 5˚
