I need to re-pot my bourganvillia which is kept in my conservatory. What soil should I use?

United Kingdom Gb

Will it survive in the conservatory which isn't heated in the winter?



I would use John Innes 2. It should survive as long as we don't have a very cold winter. Keep it just damp and don't over water as it probably won't need much.
