How do I deal with my Plumbago over winter
South Bohemia, Czech Republic
I have three lovely Plumbago plants in containers in my courtyard. They are in the Czech Republic where temps can drop to minus 30 in the winter. I have no frost free greenhouse but could bring them indoors to my empty house which is kept at 11degC throughout the winter.
Should I pot them down as I do the fuchsias (which are kept in the dark at a lower temp than 11C) before bringing them into the house, should I cut them back, should the compost be kept damp and should they be kept in the light? Or can I treat them as I do the fuchsias and keep them dark and cool?
