I have just purchased a "Senetti" from the garden centre and I am going to plant it in the flowerbed, however in the winter will it survive for next year? If not what do I do with it? Do I need to dig it up and put it in a pot? I don't have a greenhouse to keep it in....any ideas?



Well I bought two last year for the first time, and I have an unheated greenhouse that I put them in for the winter well protected with fleece etc, but they didnt survive, so I suggest if you want to keep it you might be as well to pot it and bring it indoors.

This plant is not frost hardy - its really a houseplant that can be stood, or planted, outside from mid to end May onwards, and will die once the weather gets cold.

The 2 Sinettis I have are both labelled as annuals.

I've kept them in the conservatory over the winter and to be honest it was a waste of effort, with growth and flowering disappointing the following year. Best treated as an annual - cut it back quite hard after the first flush (and all other flushes) of flowers and it will reward you.
