I once bought a Cycad but stupidly thought I could overwinter in my garage with no protection! Consequently it died..
My local market is selling them relatively cheap and I'd like to have another go as I really like them but i need some advice on how to overwinter, I have a greenhouse.



It won't survive anything below zero degrees, BBM, and it won't look well with anything below 10 deg C really. So its heated greenhouse or conservatory or indoors...

Bamboo how about if I fleeced it, kept it off the ground and bubblewrapped the pot itself in a frost-free GH?

yep, that might work - if the greenhouse remains frost free at night. Depends on how bad a winter gets I suppose...

Right, ok i'll give it a go, off the the market on Saturday!!
