Hi D.D.2
What a lovely collection!- Just keep them warm and watered for now and just think of the exciting display you will have outdoors in your garden when its warm outside.

When the Summer arrives, the succulents could be grouped together and placed in their pots and arranged in a stone or terracotta trough that is topped up with fine grit and gravel (to hide the pots) and you will have a lovely summer display. They can be lifted out again and brought indoors when the summer ends. You are doing a grand job--- well done, and I'm looking forward to seeing your lovely summer display. Sorry I can't get you out of the jungle, but it's great fun isn't it...... and you have got some lovely plants to enjoy indoors during the winter as well.
Best wishes,
Grenville xx

They look lovely Dotty, they are obviously very well cared for. Maybe they will want to stay in your conservatory permantly seeing as they look so at home there...lol! :o)

Now that's what I call a plant collection. You really look after your plants Dotty.

Grenville that is a lovely idea, will have to look out for a container to put them in, much better than taking them all out of the pots to bring them back in for the winter thanks for your advice.
Labdancer they are going out as soon as the weather warms up!!
Sandra thanks, I have cut three leaves off it, otherwise it would have taken over the garden room.
Thanks Sanbaz, it has been a challenge, Homebird it is a good thing my hubby loves plants as much as I do.
Lincslass I will try.....no promises!!
Spritz thanks, I could do with a mingling master class? Clarice they have all put on a tremendous amount of growth in the last week.

...and a jungle garden ye shall 'ave! Wonderful plants! Who needs professional help - you or the plants? Definitely not the latter (or the former, come to think of it). :-))

Aaaaaah you're doing SO well Dotty, the plants look ridiculously healthy and happy:o) Can't wait to see it all come together over the Summer. How's the Robinia now?

They all look so healthy Dotty, they've had lots of loving care.

What an enormous collection but I know how you feel about wanting your room back. I feel the same way about my much loved tortoises - roll on warm spring days followed by long hot summer ones :)
