Winter 2012/2013

Winter is on it's way.
Now what?

Last winter was not bad, it didn't  get that cold.  I don't think we had any days/nights that were below 40f.
But 2 years ago we had a few days/nights that went below 32f.

The Dyckia didn't notice the cold but the Orthophytum's, Euphorbia's and others did.

Bromelia humilis

Cardboard Palm / Zamia Furfuracea
The frost cloth didn't help, the Orthophytum I had under it froze.

I have no greenhouse or any other place to put cold tender plants.
So it's everyone for their self. Good luck to all this winter.
