Hi. Please can someone help a novice.
Is it safe to leave out my Canaries Palm, straberry plant hanging basket, and violas, as long as there is no forecast of frost.



dont know about the palm, but the others are fully hardy and will be fine outside even if there is a frost.

however where have they been in the last week? if they have been indoors then i would put them out in the day and in for the night for a week then they can stay out all year.

The Canary Island Date Palm is quite hardy to about -8 or even lower for short spells, so as long as you bring it in when there's a forcast of severe frost there shouldn't be a problem if it's in a pot and easy to move. I think that larger, more mature trees would be a bit more frost hardy.
