Hi All
I have just bought a Strelitzia Reginae (bird of paradise) plant which is about 5 foot high and flowering size will it be ok in pot in my greenhouse over the winter and in the garden in summer



If your greenhouse has temperatures which don't fall below 55-60 deg. F over the winter, presumably because its heated, then yes it should be fine in there. Otherwise you will need to keep it in a brightly lit spot indoors over winter - you can move it outside during summer, but not before June begins.

45 F at night is safe, once it is hardened off, but not if it is fresh from a heated greenhouse.
